The Israeli army on Tuesday has shot dead a 17-year-old Palestinian teen in Al-Fawwar refugee camp during clashes that broke out during an Israeli raid raid on the camp, in addition to injuring dozens of others with teargas, rubber bullets and live ammunition.

The teen was identified as Mohammed Hashhash. According to the Palestinian Red Crescent, he was shot with live ammunition in the heart.

Abu Hashhash he became the 218th Palestinian to have been killed by Israelis since the beginning of a wave of unrest across the West Bank and Israel in October. At least half of those who have been killed since October died during protests and clashes and were not armed.

In July, Israeli rights group Adalah revealed that Israeli police had unveiled new regulations which permit Israeli officers to use live ammunition on Palestinian protesters and stone throwers before trying any non-lethal option.
