Palestinian witnesses claim a 14-year-old boy was shot dead by Jewish settlers in the West Bank last night.
The witnesses, including the boy’s cousin, told police the boy was shot on Highway 60, a short distance from Ramallah after Palestinians threw stones at the car of the settlers.
He has been named locally as Ayssar Yasser from the village of Mizra al-Sharqiah, but this has not been confirmed by Israeli police.
The IDF said the body of a teenager had been found and the cause of death was unclear.
A joint Israeli-Palestinian taskforce of police and pathologists will investigate the death.
