Zionist Troops Kill Palestinian Teenager in West Bank

RAMALLAH (Dispatches) – A Palestinian teenager on Tuesday died of critical wounds sustained in clashes with Zionist troops that broke out in the Far’a refugee camp near the West Bank city of Nablus, Palestinian Health Ministry said.
The ministry said that Mahmoud al-Aydi, 17, died of his wounds after being shot in the head by Zionist troops.
Zionist troops also arrested two Palestinian teenagers over alleged stabbing attacks in two separate incidents in the occupied West Bank.
According to the Palestinian media, quoting Israeli sources, the alleged attacks left one Zionist trooper dead and a settler wounded in the eastern part of the occupied city of Al-Quds.
During the first incident on Monday afternoon, a Zionist soldier was allegedly injured by a 13-year-old Palestinian from Shuafat refugee camp. The soldier, who later died at hospital, was also shot mistakenly by a Zionist settler who intended to shoot the Palestinian teen.
During the second incident, a 14-year-old Palestinian teen also from Shuafat refugee camp allegedly injured a Zionist settler in the Old City of Al-Quds.
According to Israeli sources, the settler was only mildly wounded and transferred to hospital.
The Palestinian teens were arrested by Zionist troops.
Meanwhile, a Zionist soldier’s assault on prominent Palestinian activist Issa Amro in Al-Khalil, in the occupied West Bank, was caught on camera on Monday by a New Yorker journalist, who was criticized for his framing of events.
In a video posted on Twitter by Lawrence Wright, author of The Looming Tower, the soldier grabs Amro by his jacket and neck and throws him to the ground. He then kicks Amro before being pulled away by another soldier.
“I never had a source assaulted in front of me until today when an Israeli soldier who stopped my interview did this,” Wright tweeted.
“I can’t stop thinking how dehumanizing the occupation is on the young soldiers charged with enforcing it,” he added, which was widely criticized in the comments section of the video.
The incidents come amid heightened tensions between Palestinians and Zionist troops and settlers across the occupied territories.
On Sunday, Zionist prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed to ramp up a campaign of crackdown against Palestinians in East Al-Quds and elsewhere across the West Bank, following a spate of retaliatory attacks against settlers in the occupied territories.
Netanyahu’s remarks came after far-right Zionist minister Itamar Ben-Gvir ordered the regime’s police force to prepare for a major offensive in Al-Quds.
Ben-Gvir told reporters on Friday that he had instructed the police forces to be prepared for “Defensive Shield 2” operation in the holy city starting from Sunday.
