A Palestinian teenager has been shot and martyred by Israeli regime forces in the village of Al-Khader, south of the occupied West Bank, according to local media citing the Palestinian Ministry of Health.

According to Quds News Network, the Ministry identified the slain teenager as 15-year-old Zaid Mohammad Ghoneim, who succumbed to his wounds at hospital after being shot by live bullets in his back and neck.

The agency cited local sources and eyewitnesses as saying that the teenager assassinated by the Israeli forces in cold blood as he was surprised by their presence in the village and tried to hide in a parking garage.
