Armed Israeli settlers kill 16-year-old Palestinian in West Bank

Armed Jewish settlers killed 16-year-old Palestinian teenager in the occupied West Bank, police and witnesses said.

The body of the Palestinian teenager was found in the occupied West Bank on Friday.

The body of 16-year-old Aysar Zaben was not found until after midnight, though the incident happened on Thursday on a road near the city of Ramallah, they said.

Witnesses said a group of Palestinian teenagers threw stones at a car carrying Jewish settlers. The armed settlers then fired at the boys.

Military sources told Israeli media that the boy's body was found, but did not confirm that the cause of death was shooting and said an investigation would be launched into the incident.

A Palestinian report said the boy was shot in the back, and found by family members hours after his death when he failed to return home.
