JERUSALEM (AA): A Palestinian teen was shot dead and four others were injured, the Palestinian health ministry confirmed in a statement on Tuesday, after Israeli forces “mistakenly” shot at them during clashes in the occupied West Bank.

The Israeli army said they fired after Palestinians allegedly threw Molotov cocktails and stones at Israeli vehicles.

The army, however, confirmed that all of those shot, including 15-year-old Mahmoud Badran, were bystanders during the incident despite earlier reports that they had been involved.

Three Israelis were lightly injured in the incident near the Beit Ur al-Tahta village, near the West Bank city of Ramallah.

Palestinian news agencies Ma’an nad Imemc said that Badran and other injured Palestinians were returning back home, along with his friends, after swimming in a pool in Beit Sira nearby village.in a car nearby when Israeli soldiers fired at their vehicle.

On Tuesday at dawn, the soldiers invaded various Palestinian communities in several districts in the occupied West Bank, stormed and searched dozens of homes, and detained eleven Palestinians, the Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) said. One Palestinian was detained on Monday evening, according Imemc.
