Ahmad Amjad Shehadeh

Israeli forces killed 16-year-old Palestinian Ahmad Amjad Shehadeh during a raid in the occupied city of Nablus.

Israeli soldiers wounded over 20 other Palestinians during the raid with live bullets, tear gas, and stun grenades, reportedly to secure entry for Israeli settlers.

Yesterday, Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian student reportedly on his way to school during a raid in the occupied West Bank. Soldiers shot Mahmoud al-Saadi, 18, in the stomach.

Earlier this month, Israeli forces killed a 19-year-old Palestinian woman during a raid in the occupied West Bank, claiming she was a passenger in a “suspicious vehicle.” Sanaa al-Tal was shot in the head. Witnesses say the car was driving slowly and trying to turn around when soldiers shot at it.

Israeli forces committed 32 violations against Palestinian journalists and media in October, reports Wafa. At least, 23 journalists were injured by things like rubber bullets, beatings, and tear gas. In May, Israeli forces killed journalist Shireen Abu Akleh while she wore a press vest.

Forces have killed 199 Palestinians this year — the deadliest year for the West Bank since 2005.
