The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) shot and killed a Palestinian teen in Beita town, south of Nablus in the West Bank, on Friday evening.

The Palestinian Health Ministry affirmed that 17-year-old Moaz Bani Shamsa was fatally shot in the chest during the clashes that erupted in the town after being stormed by IOF troops.

Two Palestinians also suffered live-shot injuries, one of whom was in critical condition, while a third suffered bruises all over his body after being severely beaten by Israeli soldiers.

Dozens of others suffered from teargas inhalation during the clashes.

The death toll in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem has mounted to 400 since October 7, while figures on Palestinian prisoners indicate the arrest of 6,920 people during the same period.
