RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A 16-year-old Palestinian was shot and killed by Israeli forces during clashes that erupted in the al-Jalazun refugee camp north of al-Bireh in the central occupied West Bank, on Friday evening.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health confirmed that a Palestinian from the al-Jalazun refugee camp arrived to the Palestine Medical Center in a critical condition.

Sources added that the teen was injured with live bullets in the abdomen.

The ministry identified the killed teen as Mahmoud Youssef Nakhleh.

Israeli forces opened fire at the teen from a very close range; from less than 10 meters away.

Israeli soldiers attempted to detain Nakhleh afterwards, however, Palestinian Red Crescent paramedics were able to take him and transfer him to the Palestine Medical Center after having to quarrel Israeli soldiers for more than 30 minutes.

Nakhleh was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
