Palestinian teen shot by Israeli forces dies

The 17-year-old was identified as Kamel Alawnah by the Palestinian health ministry, which said he “succumbed to wounds from live fire by the occupation (Israeli army) in the abdomen and hand in Jenin”.
A Palestinian medical source told AFP that Alawnah was wounded in Jaba, a village in the Jenin governorate of the northern West Bank.
The Israeli military said in a statement on Sunday that “a suspect hurled a Molotov cocktail” at its troops near Jaba on Saturday.
“The soldiers responded with live fire toward the suspect,” the army added. “A hit was identified.”
Forty-nine Palestinians have been killed since late March across Israel and the Palestinian territories; civilians, attackers and suspected militants among them.
They include Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, who according to the United Nations was killed by Israeli army fire while covering a military raid in Jenin.
Israeli occupation forces have been carrying out near-daily raids in the West Bank, including in and around Jenin.
