Israeli–Palestinian conflict Palestinian teen first to be killed by Israel in 2018
Israeli forces have shot dead a Palestinian teen on the northern outskirts of the occupied West Bank town of Ramallah, according to Palestinian officials. The Palestinian health ministry identified the 17-year-old boy as Musab Firas al-Tamimi from the village of Deir Nitham, where Wednesday's shooting took place. "He died shortly after the occupation forces fired a bullet into his neck," Maria Aqraa, a spokesman for the ministry, told Al Jazeera.
"He was transferred to a hospital in Ramallah and he passed away minutes later," she added. Aqraa said Musab was shot during a confrontation with the Israeli army. According to the Times of Israel news website, the Israeli army said Musab had "appeared to be holding a gun", but that it was "not immediately confirmed that al-Tamimi had been armed at the time of the shooting".
An army spokesperson reportedly told the website that the circumstances of Musab's killing were being investigated.
