Israel forces shoot Palestinian boy to death

A Palestinian boy has died of his injuries in a hospital shortly after being shot by Israeli forces in the Jenin refugee camp in the occupied West Bank.
Islam Al-Tubasi, 19, was shot on Tuesday during clashes between Palestinians and Israeli troops who stormed the refugee camp.

According to witnesses, the Israeli troops raided a house belong to Al-Tubasi family amid gunfire and seriously injured Islam.

The Israeli forces then transferred him to an Israeli hospital, where he died of injuries.

One more Palestinian was also injured in the incident.

Witnesses also said that Israeli forces raided several houses in the camp and made some arrests before leaving.

It was the fourth deadly attack Israel conducted in Palestinian-controlled areas in West Bank since July.

The Israeli military often raids Palestinian houses in the West Bank to arrest activists and civilians, mostly without any charges.

On August 31, a Palestinian teenager, Karim Sobhi Abu Sbeih, died of wounds he had sustained during an attack by Israeli troops on the Jenin camp.

On August 26, Israeli troops shot dead three Palestinians in the Qalandiya refugee camp in the West Bank and wounded dozens of residents mostly by live rounds. The shooting occurred after dozens of Israeli troops attacked the refugee camp, north of East al-Quds (Jerusalem), to arrest a former Palestinian political prisoner.
