A 19-year-old Palestinian man was martyred and another injured on Monday in clashes at an Israeli checkpoint in the northern Israeli-occupied West Bank, Palestinian officials said.
Abdullah Tawalba, 19, was “hit by live ammunition” and died in Jenin hospital, the Palestinian Ministry of Health said in a statement.
Another person was slightly injured, it was reported from the same source.
To justify its crime, the occupying army claimed in a statement that its soldiers opened fire on the two Palestinians for launching an’explosive device’ near the checkpoint near Jenin.
No soldiers were injured, she added.
