Israeli forces kill Palestinian teen during arrest raid

July 27, 2015 9:53 A.M. (Updated: July 27, 2015 8:23 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces on Monday shot and killed a Palestinian teenager during an arrest raid in the Qalandiya refugee camp near Ramallah, Palestinian medics said.

Locals said that Israeli military vehicles raided the camp early Monday and broke into the home of Muhammad Abu Latifa, 18, in an attempt to detain him.

Israeli forces then opened fire on the teenager as he attempted to run away.

Israeli police said that Abu Latifa was shot in the leg as he was running away across a roof, then fell to his death as he tried to leap to another roof.

Israeli border police forces raided the refugee camp near Ramallah to arrest two "suspected terror activists," police said.

An Israeli paramedic attempted to treat Abu Latifa, but he was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Other eyewitness reports said that Israeli forces took the teenager into custody despite his critical injuries and shortly after delivered his body to a Palestinian ambulance, which took him to the Palestine Medical Complex.

Abu Latifa is the 18th Palestinian killed by Israeli forces this year.

On Thursday, Israeli forces shot dead Falah Hammad Abu Maria, 53, in the southern West Bank while arresting his son.

A day earlier, Israeli forces shot and killed Muhammad Ahmad Alawneh, 21, in Jenin.
