A 17-year-old Palestinian boy was shot dead in Ras al-Amoud neighborhood in Silwan town, east of occupied Jerusalem, on Sunday evening.

The Palestinian health ministry said in a statement that Ayman Sameeh al-Abbasi, 17, was fatally shot in his torso during confrontation in Ras al-Amoud and transferred to a clinic where he was pronounced dead.

Eyewitnesses reported violent confrontation in the neighborhood after a number of firebombs were hurled at a settlement outpost, adding that Israeli forces fired rubber-coated and live bullets at Palestinian protesters one of which hit Abbasi.

Local sources said that Israeli occupation forces encircled the clinic and tried to kidnap the boy before he was announced dead.

More than 70 Palestinians were injured on Sunday in confrontations with the IOF soldiers in the West Bank provinces of Tulkarem and el-Bireh in addition to occupied Jerusalem.

The shooting of Abbasi raised the number of children killed by IOF since the 1st October to 23.   

Palestinian Man Killed by Israeli occupation soldiers after Alleged Stabbing in East Jerusalem

Sunday November 29, 2015 21:03 by IMEMC News & Agencies

Israeli occupation forces shot dead a Palestinian man on Sunday, after he allegedly stabbed and injured an Israeli police officer near Damascus Gate, in occupied East Jerusalem, an Israeli police spokesperson said.

Police said the alleged attacker was a 38-year-old Palestinian from the Nablus district, in the northern occupied West Bank.

Local sources named him as Basem Abdul-Rahman Mustafa Salah, according to Ma'an News Agency.

The officer who was injured during the attack is reportedly in light to moderate condition, a Magen David Adom medical service spokesperson said.

Witnesses near the scene said that police shot the man at least 11 times during the incident, adding that Israeli forces did not allow medics to reach him.

Over 100 Palestinians have been killed since the beginning of October. Many were killed during alleged attacks on Israeli military and civilians, although Palestinians and right groups have disputed the factuality of the attacks.

19 Israelis have been killed in the same time period.

An illegal Israeli fanatic settler stabbed and wounded two Palestinian brothers in Kafr Kana, in 1948 Occupied Palestine, on Sunday.

According to the victims' father, Muhammad Abu Khalaf, an Israeli fanatic knifed his two sons at a gas station near Tiberias city and disappeared right away. 

He added that his sons were rushed to the Poriya hospital in Tiberias to be urgently treated for the inflicted wounds.

Abu Khalaf slammed the “racist” stabbing attack saying: “My sons only mistake was that they spoke Arabic, their mother tongue.”

He said the Israeli police launched a probe into the stabbing and found no difficulty identifying the assailant based on surveillance cameras installed across the station.

Meanwhile, the Anti-Racism Coalition in 1948 Occupied Palestine said the racist attacks carried out by Israeli fanatics have seen a dramatic surge over the past few weeks.  

Several Palestinians injured as IOF props up military grip in al-Khalil

November 30, 2015, AL-KHALIL, (PIC)--

A number of Palestinians choked on tear gas on Sunday evening in clashes with the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) in al-Khalil’s northern town of Beit Ummar, in the southern West Bank.

A PIC news reporter said violent clashes flared up in Beit Ummar, where the IOF attacked the Palestinian protesters with tear gas canisters and stun grenades.

Several Palestinians sustained critical breathing disorders due to heavy inhalation of tear gas.

Meanwhile, two Palestinian youths were aggressively assaulted and kidnapped by the occupation troops near Beit Ummar’s main entrance.

The IOF has tightened military grip around the area, sealing off all of its main entrances with concrete roadblocks.

A military checkpoint was also pitched by the IOF on al-Khalil’s main access road known as al-Joura entrance, where Palestinian vehicles and passers-by had been subjected to exhaustive inspection.

Another military checkpoint was set up on the main entrance to al-Khalil’s southern area known as Wadi al-Jouz. A traffic congestion cropped up after dozens of Palestinian vehicles and passers-by lined up in long queues for inspection and interrogation by the IOF.

All of the other main entrances to the city have reportedly been sealed off with cement blocks as part of Israeli intents to crack down on the Palestinian citizens and quell anti-occupation activism in the area.
