Israeli troops shot and killed a teenage Palestinian boy, Amjad al-Fayyed, 17, as they raided the northern city of Jenin in the occupied West Bank.

The Palestinian health ministry and local media said that another 18-year-old Palestinian was in a critical condition after being wounded by Israeli gunfire.

The number of Palestinians killed in Jenin since the beginning of 2022 has reached 20.

“A 17-year-old boy was killed and an 18-year-old was critically wounded by the Israeli occupation’s bullets during its aggression on Jenin,” the ministry said in a statement.

A march held in front of Ibn Sina Hospital in the city, in which mourners carried al-Fayyed’s body on their shoulders and roamed the streets.

Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh condemned the killing.

“We warn against the consequences of the occupation’s continued crimes against our people. We urge the international community to condemn them and hold the perpetrators accountable,” Shtayyeh said in a statement.
