Bethlehem/PNN/

The European Union condemned in a statement today a recent increase in violence by Israeli settlers across the occupied West Bank, which on Friday resulted in the killing of a Palestinian teenager near Ramallah.

Amjad Nash’at Abu Alia, 15, died on Friday afternoon shortly after he was critically wounded in the chest by live ammunition fired by Israeli settlers during confrontations in the village of Mughayyer, northeast of Ramallah.

“Saddened by yet another young victim of settler violence: 15-year-old Amjad Abu Alya was killed on Friday at Mughayyer village,” said the EU in a tweet.

“A rapid & transparent investigation is needed. The EU firmly condemns the increase in settler violence & growing number of casualties, including children.”
