NABLUS, Palestine (AA): A Palestinian youth who was shot in the head by Israeli soldiers in the northern West Bank died early Thursday. Whilst on Wednesday, Israeli forces shot dead a Palestinian woman for allegedly attempting to carry out a car-ramming attack northeast of Jerusalem, according to the army.

The 16-year-old Ahmad Zahi Bani-Shamsa, was being treated at Rafidia Surgical Hospital in the city of Nablus.

Ahmad Beni Shamsa was wounded during a protest by residents of the town of Beita in Nablus against the establishment of an illegal settlement outpost on their land in Jabal Sabih.

Bani-Shamsa, the fourth Palestinian killed in anti-settlement rallies in Beita, was taking part in a rally at Jabal Sabih mount, located near the town, where Israeli settlers recently set up an illegal settlement outpost.

The Israeli army attempted to disperse the Palestinian protesters with live bullets.

Meanwhile on Wednesday, Israeli forces shot dead a Palestinian woman for allegedly attempting to carry out a car-ramming attack northeast of Jerusalem, according to the army.

A military statement said the woman attempted to ram her car into a number of Israeli soldiers before exiting the vehicle with a knife near the town of Hizme, northeast of Jerusalem.

According to the statement, the woman was neutralized, but the Army Radio later confirmed that she was killed by Israeli forces.

The army said a soldier was lightly injured.

There was no comment yet from the Palestinian authorities on the incident.

Dozens of Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces in recent months for allegedly attempting to carry out stabbing or car-ramming attacks. Palestinian rights groups, meanwhile, accuse the Israeli forces of deliberately killing Palestinians with no risk to their lives.

Wednesday’s killing came amid rising tension across occupied East Jerusalem following a provocative flag march staged by right-wing Israelis on Tuesday.

International law regards both the West Bank and East Jerusalem as occupied territories and considers all Jewish settlement-building activity there illegal.
