Israeli Troops Shoot Palestinian Teen to Death in Protest Against Trump’s Middle East Plan

HeadlineFeb 06, 2020

In the Israeli-occupied West Bank, Israeli troops shot dead a 17-year-old Palestinian teen Wednesday during a protest in the city of Hebron against President Trump’s Middle East plan. Mohammed al-Haddad is the first Palestinian killed in demonstrations that erupted after Trump unveiled his plan last week. Under the plan, drafted by Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner without any input from Palestinians, Israel would gain sovereignty over large areas of the occupied West Bank, Jerusalem would be under total Israeli control, and all Jewish settlers in the occupied territory would be allowed to remain in their homes.
