Palestinian teen killed by Israeli fire in occupied West Bank

Jerusalem (BLAZETRENDS) in the region.

“The 15-year-old boy Muhamed Fayez Bilhan was killed by shots to the head, chest and abdomen by the (Israeli) occupation, in the Aqabat Jabr camp in Jericho,” a ministry statement said.

At least one other person was injured by a bullet and was taken to a hospital, the same source reported.

For its part, the Israeli Army confirmed that its troops are operating in Aqabat Jaber, adjacent to the Palestinian tourist city of Jericho, but offered no further details.

The uniformed men surrounded the entire camp and raided the place “to arrest activists, and during the raid, Palestinians confronted the soldiers who opened fire on them,” the official Palestinian news agency Wafa reported.

These events come hours after an Israeli soldier and officer were slightly injured by Palestinian fire during an operation in Nablus, a city in the northern West Bank.

In that place, a stronghold of Palestinian militias, was found the car that was allegedly used to carry out an armed attack on Friday in the Jordan Valley, also in the West Bank, which caused the death of two Israeli settlers of British origin.
The Israeli authorities are still searching for the perpetrators of this attack.

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has turned particularly bloody in the past year, with an increase in Israeli army raids in the West Bank and an increase in attacks by Palestinians, as well as violent attacks by Israeli settlers.

The first months of this year have been the most violent of the conflict since 2000. Since the beginning of 2023, 96 Palestinians and Arab-Israelis have died in violent incidents with Israel and also 18 people on the Israeli side, victims of attacks.

The escalation in this area has even had repercussions on other fronts: in recent days there have been violent clashes between Israeli forces and Muslims who were at the Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem for prayers for their holy month of Ramadan, and there have been exchanges of fire between Israel and Palestinian militias in the Gaza Strip, Syria and Lebanon.

Israel took control of East Jerusalem and the West Bank in 1967, and since then has maintained an occupation and colonization of these territories that is one of the longest in recent history.
