Israeli Forces Kill West Bank Palestinian Teen After Fatal Shooting of Palestinian in Jerusalem

HeadlineDec 06, 2021

In the occupied West Bank, Israeli soldiers shot dead a 16-year-old Palestinian after he allegedly drove his car into a military checkpoint. The teen was identified as Mohammad Nidal Younis.

This comes as human rights advocates are condemning the killing of a Palestinian man shot dead by Israeli police after he stabbed an Israeli settler in occupied East Jerusalem. Al Jazeera reports footage by bystanders showed police continuing to shoot Mohammad Salima from point-blank range even after the 25-year-old had been knocked to the ground and no longer appeared to pose a threat.
