The child, Saleh Al-Amareen, 15, was moved to the local governmental hospital in Bethlehem suffering serious injuries after being shot by a live round to the head.

Aida refugee camp in Bethlehem have been repeatedly attacked and invaded by Israeli soldiers this week leading to clashes between the residents and the invading army; several injuries have been reported.

The Israeli army conducted at least 40 military invasions into Palestinian communities in the West Bank and Gaza this past week, and killed a teenager, injured another and kidnapped at least 29 Palestinian civilians.

This week invasions in the West Bank were focused in the cities of Jenin and Nablus, northern West Bank and in Hebron in the south; four children were among those arrested by the army this week.

On Tuesday midday a 17-year-old Palestinian boy was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers, as he walked near his school close to the Israeli Annexation Wall in Bodros village, in central West Bank.

The slain young Palestinian has been identified as Samir Ahmad Abdul-Rahim, 17; he was shot as he and his schoolmates were leaving school.
