Palestinian teen shot in clashes 2 weeks ago dies from wounds

RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- A 16-year-old Palestinian shot by Israeli forces during clashes two weeks ago succumbed to his wounds on Wednesday, the Palestinian Ministry of Health said.

The ministry said doctors failed to save the life of Ibrahim Abdul-Halim Dawood, 16, after the teen was shot in his heart during Ramallah clashes two weeks previously.

Dawood, from the village of Deer Ghassan in the central occupied West Bank village of Ramallah, is the second Palestinian teen to lose their life on Wednesday.

Earlier, Israeli forces shot and killed Muhammad Ismail Shubaki, a 19-year-old student, after the teen stabbed an Israeli soldier near al-Fawwar refugee camp in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health told Ma’an that Shubaki was shot on scene and evacuated to Hadassah hospital in Jerusalem in critical condition, where he later died.

Israeli emergency service Magen David Adom said the Israeli, 20, was left in severe condition and transferred to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.

At least 96 Palestinians have been killed by Israelis since the beginning of October, 24 of which were minors. While Israel alleged many of those were attempting to attack Israelis when they were shot, Palestinians and rights groups have disputed Israel's version of events in a number of cases.

The attacks that have taken place -- claiming the lives of 19 Israelis -- have been accompanied by a wave of popular unrest that has swept the occupied Palestinian territory and Israel.
