"A Palestinian teenager was killed on Monday and several others injured when Israeli army troops attacked a protest organized by school students in the village of Al Mazra'ah Al Sarqyiah, located near the central West Bank city of Ramallah.
Medical sources said that Mohamed Al Shuraiteh, 19, was shot by live rounds, which killed him.
Witnesses told reporters that school children organized the demonstration to protest the continuous Israeli attacks on Gaza that have killed 116 Palestinians since last Wednesday. When the children reached the checkpoint located at the village entrance troops opened fire killing the teenager and injuring three others.
Meanwhile Israeli troops invaded the village of Bil'in also located near Ramallah, villagers said that troops clashed with local school children protesting over the Israeli attacks on Gaza. No injures were reported, but the clashes continue.
