Israeli troops kill Palestinian youth in West Bank

A Palestinian youth was killed on Tuesday during clashes with Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank city of Tubas.

The Ministry of Health confirmed that 26-year-old Saddam Hussein Ban Odei was killed after he was shot by Israeli forces during the clashes that erupted in the aforementioned city.

It added Bani Odeh was shot with a bullet that penetrated his left shoulder and heart and settled in his left lung.

Israeli forces usually use force to disperse anti-settlement weekly rallies in the occupied West Bank.

Israel occupied the West Bank and the Gaza Strip — territories the Palestinians want for a future state — during the six-day Arab-Israeli war in 1967. It later had to withdraw from Gaza.

More than 600,000 Israelis live in over 230 settlements built since the 1967 occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank. All the settlements are illegal under international law. The United Nations Security Council has condemned the settlement activities in several resolutions.
