NABLUS – Israeli troops killed a Palestinian teenager in the occupied West Bank city of Nablus on Tuesday, according to the Palestinian health ministry, with the Israeli army alleging he fired on soldiers.

Hamza Amjad al-Ashqar, 17, was “killed by a gunshot in the face fired by occupation (Israeli) soldiers during the onslaught on Nablus,” according to the ministry.

The Israeli army claimed troops had “responded with live fire towards an armed suspect who fired at them”.

“A hit was identified,” the army said in a statement, adding that “rocks, explosive devices, and Molotov cocktails were hurled at the soldiers” conducting the raid.

A military spokeswoman was unable to immediately identify the weapon used by the armed suspect.

According to a Palestinian security source who was not authorized to speak to the media, Ashqar was from the Askar refugee camp in Nablus.

According to the source, three persons were arrested during the Israeli raid on the city.

Ashqar was not a member of any Palestinian organization.

Separately, the official Palestinian news agency said that approximately 20 Palestinians were detained in Burqin, near the flashpoint city of Jenin.

A fresh wave of Israeli incursions in West Bank towns and cities has resulted in an increasing death toll.

After a days-long search for suspects in a shooting at a restaurant near Jericho, Israeli forces killed five suspected Palestinian gunmen in a raid on Monday.

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has claimed the lives of 42 Palestinians since the beginning of the year, including assailants, terrorists, and bystanders. During the same time period, six Israeli civilians, including a child, and one Ukrainian civilian were killed.
