Youth killed, 15 injured in clashes with Israeli forces near Ramallah

Aug. 1, 2014 7:05 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 2, 2014 6:09 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian youth was killed and 15 others were injured Friday in clashes with Israeli forces near Ramallah, a Ma'an reporter said.

Odai Nafiz Jabr, 19, was killed in the village of Safa after being hit by two bullets in the chest and one in the hand.

Jabr was the second Palestinian to be killed in clashes with Israeli forces in the West Bank on Friday.

Five other Palestinians were injured by live bullets, one of them critically after being shot in the chest. Another 10 Palestinian were injured by rubber-coated bullets.

The injured were taken to Ramallah Governmental Hospital.

Clashes broke out after a demonstration denouncing the ongoing Israeli assault on Gaza.

Palestinians marched towards Israel's separation wall, where they were met by live bullets, rubber-coated bullets, and tear gas fired by Israeli forces.

Youths hit a number of the Israeli soldiers with stones throughout the clashes.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was looking into the incident.

Earlier, a 22-year-old was killed after being shot in the chest by Israeli forces in Tulkarem.

Hamas earlier in the day had called on Palestinians in the West Bank to participate in "Day of Anger" demonstrations in cities and villages across the West Bank in solidarity with Gaza.

Israeli forces killed nine Palestinians in the West Bank in a 24-hour period last week as tens of thousands took the streets in solidarity with Gaza in the largest demonstrations since the Second Intifada.

The killing on Friday brought the total deaths in West Bank protests over the last three weeks to 14, while nearly 1,500 have been killed in the Israeli assault in the West Bank.
