A Palestinian youth was shot dead after he allegedly stabbed three Israeli officers in the occupied East Jerusalem, near Damascus Gate, this afternoon.
According to the Israeli media, Mohammad Ali (18) from Shuafat camp north Jerusalem was shot-dead, leaving one Israeli officer seriously wounded, and the others with light to moderate wounds.
The circumstances around the shooting are still not clear.
Mohammad is the fourth youth to be killed by IOF this day (Saturday).
This morning, one Gaza youth, Jehad Obeid (22) was announced dead of wounds he sustained yesterday during clashes by IOF.
Ahmad Jamal (20) was shot dead by IOF during clashes in Shuafat camp, and Isaac Badran (16) was also killed by IOF after he allegedly tried to stab an Israeli soldier in Jerusalem’s Damascus gate.
The killing raises the death toll of Palestinians to 17 since the beginning of this month, 7 of which have been killed during clashes with IOF on Gaza borders.
