Israeli Soldiers Kill Palestinian Teen During Raid in Occupied West Bank

HeadlineJun 14, 2023

Israeli forces killed a 19-year-old Palestinian and injured at least eight others during a raid on the Balata refugee camp in Nablus, in the occupied West Bank. The soldiers were searching for another man when they started firing on people in the vicinity of his home. This is the brother of the wanted man, who said their house was surrounded by Israeli forces, who threatened to bomb it and kill everyone inside.

Suhaib Sallaj: “Suddenly, they shoot at people. A young child who was walking with groceries was shot. We knew it was the army. Then we heard them calling on megaphones for Issam to surrender: 'We know you are inside the house.'”

Meanwhile, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is in China this week, after Beijing offered to facilitate peace talks with Israel.
