19 year old Palestinian killed during clash with Israeli settlers

Clashes erupted between Palestinian youth and Israeli troops in the occupied West Bank on Friday amid ongoing demonstrations against the USA decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, according to eyewitnesses.

Palestinian security sources said the clash was started by the settlers, after which the army intervened and fired at a group of Palestinians yesterday. On Friday evening, Israeli soldiers shot and killed a young Palestinian man who was deaf and could not speak, in the southern West Bank city of Hebron.

He was shot after the soldiers resorted to the excessive use of force against Palestinian protesters, firing live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets and gas bombs. Under global law, all of Israeli's settlements are considered illegal, built on occupied Palestinian land.

Since last December, Palestinians have staged frequent demonstrations in the occupied territories to protest U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Some 550,000 Israelis live in West Bank settlements and East Jerusalem, areas that are home to more than 2.6 million Palestinians.

Israel seized mainly Arab east Jerusalem in the 1967 Six-Day War and later annexed it in a move never recognised by the global community.
