BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot a Palestinian teenager in the head on Friday during clashes in Bethlehem's Aida refugee camp, leaving him critically injured, a Ma'an reporter said.
Salih al-Amarin, 15, was taken to the Arab Society Hospital in Beit Jala, where medics said he was in a critical condition.
An Israeli military spokeswoman did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
On Tuesday, 17-year-old Samir Ahmad Abdul-Rahim was the fourth Palestinian shot dead by Israeli forces in less than a week.
He was shot four times by Israeli soldiers in Budrus, near Ramallah.
