Israeli troops kill Palestinian teen

08 December 2013, 07:01

Ramallah - Israeli troops shot dead a 15-year-old Palestinian during a Saturday night clash in Jelazoun refugee camp, near the West Bank city of Ramallah, a Palestinian medical source told AFP.

He named the youth as Wajih al-Ramhi and said that he was dead on arrival at Ramallah, from a single gunshot.

Israeli news website Ynet said that he was hit in the back.

The Israeli military could not immediately confirm or deny the reports.

The camp is close to the Israeli settlement of Beit El and is the scene of frequent clashes between young Palestinian stone-throwers and soldiers.

Saturday's death brought to 26 the number of Palestinians killed by Israeli forces since the beginning of this year, the great majority in the West Bank, according to an AFP tally.

Israeli Foreign Minister Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman has said Israeli-Palestinian peace talks are unlikely to bear fruit within the envisioned nine-month timeframe, but that dialogue should continue in order to contain the long-running conflict.

"I don't believe it is possible in the next year... to achieve a comprehensive solution to achieve some breakthrough but I think it is crucial to keep our dialogue," he said on Friday in Washington after US Secretary of State John Kerry said peace was closer than it had been in years.
