 A Palestinian teenager was shot dead by Israeli forces during clashes in the Israeli-occupied West Bank on Friday, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.

"Murad Abu Ghazi, 16, was killed after being struck in the chest by a bullet fired by an Israeli soldier during clashes that occurred in the Al-Aroub refugee camp near the West Bank city of Hebron [Al-Khalil]," the ministry said in a statement. 

"Another Palestinian teenager was seriously injured after a bullet struck him in the chest," it added. 

The Israeli army, for its part, has yet to comment on the incident. 

Since October of 2015, 266 Palestinians have been killed by the Israeli army, most of whom were shot dead while allegedly carrying out attacks on Israelis or while clashing with Israeli troops. 

Israel, for its part, says 47 Israelis have been killed over the same period in attacks carried out by Palestinians.
