JENIN, Palestine (AA): A Palestinian youth was killed on Thursday in clashes with Israeli forces in the West Bank city of Jenin.

A medical source in Jenin’s Khalil Suleiman hospital told Anadolu Agency that the young man arrived at the hospital with bullet wounds and could not be saved.

Clashes erupted in the city after Israeli forces demolished the home of a Palestinian detainee Ahmed al-Qumbu for the second time in 2018.

The Israeli forces used live and rubber bullets to disperse the youths.

Local sources said that the martyr is Yazan Munther Abu Tabikh, 19, a student at the Military Independence College in the West Bank city of Jericho.

Palestinian groups have called for a strike Thursday to mourn the killing.

Earlier on Wednesday, a Palestinian teen, Mohammad Salman al-Haddad, 17, was shot and killed after Israeli soldiers attacked Palestinian protesters in the southern West Bank city of Hebron, the Palestinian Ministry of Health has reported.

Witnesses said protests broke out in Bab az-Zawiya area, where the heavily-barricaded Israeli-controlled H2 area of Hebron meets the Palestinian-administered H1 section, where Israeli soldiers fired live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets and tear-gas canisters at the youths.

The Ministry of Health said al-Haddad was brought to Hebron hospital in critical condition after an Israeli soldier shot him with a live round in the heart; he was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.

During the protest, some soldiers even fired bursts of automatic live fire at the unarmed Palestinian protesters who hurled stones at them.

The soldiers also fired a barrage of gas bombs, rubber-coated steel bullets, and concussion grenades.
