MADRID, 23 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) -
At least one Palestinian teenager has died and four other young people have been shot on Tuesday night in clashes with the Israeli Army.
The Palestinian health authorities have announced the death of a 16-year-old minor, Ahmed Amjad Shehadeh, after succumbing in hospital to serious injuries caused by several bullets.
In addition, four other young people have been injured by bullets, one of whom is in critical condition due to an abdominal wound. Dozens of people have been suffocated by tear gas, the Palestinian news agency Wafa reports.
According to Wafa, a large number of Israeli Armed Forces agents, accompanied by a military bulldozer, stormed the eastern part of the city of Nablus, sparking clashes with citizens. In addition, the Israeli Army reportedly attacked an ambulance belonging to the Palestinian Red Crescent with bullets.
For its part, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have not commented publicly on what happened. Meanwhile, the Israeli media have explained that the presence of the IDF in Nablus tonight was due to the fact that "they sought to ensure a monthly pilgrimage of faithful Orthodox Jews to a sanctuary."
With this death, the number of fatalities in Palestine by the Israeli Armed Forces since the beginning of the year has risen to 200, of whom 57 have been under 18 years of age.
