BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot dead a 17-year-old Palestinian during clashes in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron on Monday evening, the Palestinian Ministry of Health told Ma'an.

The ministry identified the teen as Iyad Rawhi Jaradat, and said he was shot dead inBeit Einunvillage during clashes in the area.

Raed al-Saeed, a doctor at al-Ahli hospital, said Jaradat arrived dead at the hospital, adding that X-rays showed he had the bullet lodged inside his head.

An Israeli army spokesperson said Israeli forces shot rubber-coated steel bullets at a main instigator "in light of ongoing violence" during clashes, and that the Palestinian "fell and hit is head" and was given medical treatment by Israeli forces before being evacuated by a Red Crescent ambulance.

The spokesperson had no information of a Palestinian being shot in the head during the clashes.

Jaradat's death makes the third Palestinian to have been shot dead by Israeli forces on Monday.

Locals said Jaradat was killed during clashes that broke out after Israeli forces suppressed a march headed towards the home of Raed Jaradat, who was the first Palestinian shot dead on Monday.

Israeli forces shot dead Raed Jaradat, 22, after he stabbed an Israeli soldier just north of Hebron.

The 19-year-old soldier who was stabbed, was reportedly seriously injured and taken for medical treatment at the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.

Hours between Monday's first and third incident in Hebron, Israeli forces shot dead Saad Muhammad Youssef al-Atrash, 19.

Israeli forces reportedly shot and killed teen after he allegedly attempted to stab an Israeli soldier outside the Ibrahimi Mosque in central Hebron city. No Israelis were injured during the incident.

Monday's deaths bring the total number of Palestinians killed by Israeli forces to at least 60 since the beginning of the month.

While around 30 of those killed were shot after allegedly carrying out attacks on Israelis, a number of alleged attacks have been disputed by Palestinian witnesses and investigations by rights groups who say the suspects posed no threat at the time of their death.

Hebron has seen a particularly high death toll in recent weeks with 11 Palestinians shot dead since late September -- in every case after an alleged stabbing attempt -- and one Palestinian activist dying from excessive tear gas inhalation.

It looks Israel is killing more of the younger age group than adults. But yet they detain more adults that the young ones. They must have another seperation policy as they have in the Mosque during prayer time. The young get kill and the older one get to go to jail.

They sure like killing the young people. Judging from the amount of bullets fired they try to do it more than once each time.

Right Joe Fattal. And all others live in a jail too, no freedom of movement which is a basic human right. One people living at the expense of another people: the biggest crime someone can commit. Shame on the world with its double standards and not applying international law!
