BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A 13-year-old Palestinian boy was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers during clashes in Aida refugee camp in Bethlehem on Monday, Palestinian medics told Ma'an.

Abed al-Rahman Shadi Obeidallah, was shot near the heart by Israeli forces during clashes in the refugee camp.

He was taken in a civilian car to Beit Jala hospital where he immediately underwent surgery. However, doctors later pronounced him dead.

The child was initially reported to be 12 years old, although medics later confirmed he was 13.

Another teenager was reportedly shot with live fire in the leg during the same clashes and taken to hospital for treatment, locals said.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was looking into the reports.

Overnight Sunday, Israeli forces shot dead a Palestinian teenager during clashes in the northern West Bank village of Bala, east of Tulkarem.

Red Crescent officials told Ma'an that 18-year-old Huthayfa Othman Suleiman was shot in the chest during clashes and died in the operating room.

The killings follow violent confrontations over the weekend in which the Palestinian Red Crescent documented at least 96 Palestinians who were wounded by live rounds or rubber-coated steel bullets in clashes with Israeli forces and settlers.

Overnight Saturday, Fadi Samir Mustafa Alloun, 19, from the East Jerusalem village of al-Issawiya, was shot dead by Israeli forces after allegedly attempting to stab a group of Israelis.

The incident took place just hours after another Palestinian was shot dead when he stabbed and possibly opened fire on a family of Israelis at the Old City's Lion's Gate.

Two Israelis were killed and two others injured, including a two-year-old infant, in the attack.

Palestinian children mobs stepped up their violent attacks with rocks, firebombs and explosive devices in Jerusalem and the town districts of A-Tur, Silwan, Issawiyeh and Shuafat. Violent disturbances also erupted in Bethlehem and Hebron,

Certainly glad to see that that Security Barrier is doing its job so well--spoken with the utmost sarcasm. Prayers for this boy's family, all in Aida and for the continued right of return for all of the refugee families living in Aida.

Palestinian parents and militants, who allow and encourage,
such boys to become part of the "Resistance" are despicable,
and far more responsible for the shooting, than the Israelis !!

it is unfortunate that those Israelis were killed. However the response of the Israelis, especially settlers, turning into rabid dogs as usual is despicable to say the least. Stop the occupation and there would be peace.

Israel's operation to take over the Aqsa (let's call it Operation: Goldstein) is going swimmingly. The murder of 13-year-old Abed al-Rahman Shadi Obeidallah will horrify and enrage Palestinians who will respond with deadly violence. When Israel has ignited an intifada, it will simply step in and take control under the pretext of establishing "security" for endangered Israelis. The plan is quite clear and almost mesmerisingly evil.
