The Israeli forces have shot a 17 year old Palestinian boy, Muhammad Abu Hashhash, in the chest during a scuffle in the Fawwar camp, located near the city of al-Khalil (Hebron). According to a statement released by the Palestinian Ministry of Health, Muhammad was shot in the chest during the clash.
The clash happened when Israeli forces stormed the camp on Tuesday, ransacked homes and interrogated residents. The Israeli later fires gunshots, tear gas and rubber coated steel bullets at Palestinian youths.
According to witnesses at the camp, the Israeli forces also stopped an ambulance carrying an injured person away from the camp for an hour. The Israeli forces recently have faced heavy criticism with how they handle Palestinians youths who did not pose a threat or could have been detained through non-lethal means.
More than 230 Palestinians have died, including women and children in the hands of Israeli forces in what is regarded as the third Palestinian Intifada (uprising) since the beginning of last October.
