Israeli forces execute Palestinian boy in West Bank

Days of Palestine -

Days of Palestine, West Bank -Israeli occupation forces executed on Friday evening Palestinian boy near West Bank city of Ramallah.

Witnesses said that the Israeli occupation forces stationed at the Israeli checkpoint of Beit El shot the Palestinian boy from a distance of about 70metres.

Israeli media reported an Israeli army spokesperson saying that the Palestinian boy was shot dead after he had attempted to stab an Israeli soldier at that checkpoint.

However, the accounts of the witnesses, who spoke to Days of Palestine, proved the distrust of the Israeli claims of a stabbing attempt as how could someone pose danger on someone else while he is about 70metres away from him.

Palestinian ministry of health confirmed the death and identified the boy as Mahmoud Sha’lan, 16, from the village of Deir Dibwan east of Ramallah.
