BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian teenager during a military operation in Jenin refugee camp in the northern West Bank early Tuesday, locals and medics said.

Palestinian Red Crescent medics told Ma'an 16-year-old Yousef Abu Zagha was shot by Israeli fire in the chest during clashes with troops who raided the camp overnight.

Abu Zagha was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at a public hospital in Jenin.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said that he was a "Hamas operative" about to hurl an explosive device at troops sent to arrest him.

"They opened fire and confirmed a hit," the spokeswoman said.

The killing came after Israeli forces found the bodies of three Israeli teenagers who had been missing in the West Bank for over two weeks.

Israeli forces have killed six Palestinians in the military operation that followed the disappearance of the teenagers from the Gush Etzion settlement on June 12.

So horrific to see the imprisoned and brutally occupied youths get slaughtered by the israeli military terrorists. Support the BDS and add your voice to stop these atrocities and end the illegal brutal occupation.

This Palestinian youth was Not "imprisoned or slaughtered". Instead,
- He lived in refugee camp, where he was free to come & go.
- He was killed in self-defense, as he tried to kill others with a bomb.
- His home is under Palestinian Authority, so he's Not "occupied".
- His (Not the israeli military) actions were those of "terrorists" !!!!

The innocent Palestinian is accused by israel of throwing a grenade. That means there is absolutely no truth in the israeli lie. Other lies I have heard from israel, israel murdered the 9 Turks in self defense on the Mavi Marmara, the israeli that drove the Bull Dozer that murdered Rachel Corrie could not see where she was, the israeli jets and gunboats which attempted to sink the USS Liberty in 1967 mistook the Liberty for an Egyptian Frigate. 34 US Navy were murdered by israel on the Liberty.

Odd isn't it - the Israeli spokeswoman suddenly is able to give such information? "A Hamas opperative..." She usually knows nothing when asked to comment, according to media reports! And now here she is, giving detail! Israeli military junta write her the script before the event?

To David #6: 'Btw...the innocent teenager threw a grenade at Israeli troops.' No -- the Israeli troops CLAIMED he threw a grenade at them. While that doesn't rule out the possibility that he did, it does absolutely nothing to increase the likelihood of that being what happened either.

This kid threw a grenade at IDF troops. Im not sure which Arab country allows kids to do that while insuring their safety but when you find one let me know. For future reference, the IDF is no longer allowing kids to play with troops by throwing grenades and firebombs and the like. Parents, please find some healthier hobbies for your kids.

The Israeli army 'claim' that he threw a grenade.

Israel wouldn't be Israel without some chutzpatic claim regarded as ludicrous by most of the world yet repeated and repeated (and repeated) hypnotically. (Like Iranian nukes and the plan of the Imams to "wipe Israel off the map".) The new one is that Hamas killed the Yeshiva teens. Shot in cold blood in an obvious revenge killing, hidden under rocks and branches, Haniyeh and Meshaal no more pulled the trigger (or approved it or were aware of it) than Netanyahu and Ya'alon killed

(contd.) Muhammad Abu Khdeir may his soul rest in perfect peace. However, Yousef Abu Zagha, 16-year-old "Hamas operative" and all the others killed by soldiers during the "search" is different. There, the buck stops with Bibi and DM Bilko, their hands dripping with Martyrs' blood, war criminals both.
