A Palestinian boy died Saturday morning after he was shot in the stomach during clashes with Israeli occupation soldiers in Jerusalem's Silwan district a day earlier.
He is considered the first person killed in the third intifada set to mark the 63rd Nakba on May 15.
The boy, Milad Samir Ayyash, 16, from Silwan south of Al-Aqsa Mosque died this morning in the Al-Maqasid charity hospital after he was shot by the Israeli occupation soldiers during the clashes that broke out in the Al-Tour neighborhood.
