Palestinian teen shot by IDF, allegedly while throwing explosive, dies
[IsraelTimes] A 16-year-old Paleostinian who was shot by Israeli soldiers in the West Bank, allegedly after hurling an bomb at them, died of his injuries on Thursday.
The Israel Defense Forces said Wednesday a group of dozens of Paleostinians was making its way toward troops at the Evyatar illegal outpost when one charged at them and threw a suspicious object, which went
kaboom!. An IDF soldier fired first in the air and then toward the suspect, who was hit and critically injured. There were no Israeli casualties, the army said.
According to the Paleostinian Authority’s Wafa news agency, the teenager, a resident of nearby Beita, south of Nablus, died in the hospital early Thursday of a gunshot wound to the head. He was identified as Ahmad Zahi Bani Shamsa.
Three other Paleostinians were killed by Israeli fire during different festivities between Beita residents and Israeli forces in recent days, including another teenager, 15-year-old Mohammad Hamayel.
The area around Beita has seen repeated festivities between Israeli forces and Paleostinians in recent weeks following the reestablishment of a new West Bank outpost known as Evyatar on land close to the town. Paleostinians have hurled stones at troops and burned swaths of land, while Israeli soldiers have responded with riot dispersal munitions and live bullets.
The land on which Evyatar was reestablished in April historically belonged to the adjacent Paleostinian villages of Beita, Kablan and Yitma, though residents have been barred access to it for decades for what the IDF has said were security reasons.
The outpost has quickly grown over the last two months, swelling to roughly 40 buildings for dozens of families. The outpost’s Facebook page boasts that Evyatar prevents contiguity between the surrounding Paleostinian villages while connecting the Israeli settlement of Tapuah to the Za’atara Junction and Migdalim settlement.
On Sunday, the head of the IDF’s Central Command issued a "demarcation order" barring additional construction in Evyatar and ordering all inhabitants to vacate the site and remove their belongings by next week.
Evyatar has already been razed several times since it was built in 2013 after the murder of Yitzhar resident Evyatar Borovsky in a stabbing attack at the Tapuah Junction.
