The Palestinian District Coordination Office (DCO) has confirmed that a Palestinian child, who was shot and seriously injured by Israeli army fire near Ramallah Friday, has succumbed to his wounds at an Israeli hospital on Saturday dawn.

The DCO said the Israeli side officially informed that Mohammad Abdullah Saleh Hamed, 16, from Silwad town, east of the central West Bank city of Ramallah, had succumbed to his serious wounds.

The soldiers shot Hammad during protests that took place after several Israeli military jeeps invaded Silwad.

Talking to Palestine TV, Silwad Mayor Raed Nimir was shot with a bullet in the face near bypass road #60 and added that his corpse will be transferred to his family in the evening today, Saturday, before the official burial ceremony is held on the same day.

At the time of his injury, Abdullah’s name or age remained unknown; however, his condition was known to the Palestinians to be serious before the army took him away.

Nimir added that the soldiers invaded the town several times within just a few hours after shooting the child, leading to protests. He also said the town is subject to daily invasions and violations by the soldiers.

After his death was confirmed, hundreds of residents marched in Silwad at dawn while chanting against the ongoing illegal Israeli occupation and escalating Israeli violations against the Palestinians.

The Palestinians in Silwad declared a two-day strike in the town to mourn the slain child.

A 16-year-old Palestinian died of his wounds on Saturday after being shot by Israeli forces in the West Bank on Friday night, the Palestinian Coordination Office said.

According to the report from the Palestinian Authority division, the teenager, Abdullah Muhammad Hamad, was arrested by the Israeli military after he was shot in the town of Silwad, north of Ramallah.

Silwad residents said that Hamad was evacuated from the site after the shooting to an unknown location; an announcement of his death was released on Saturday morning.

According to the Israeli military, dozens of Palestinians had gathered near Silwad on Friday night, and several of them had thrown stones at Route 60. Soldiers fired at one of them, and confirmed that one of the Palestinians was shot.

Last month, the Palestinian Health Ministry announced that a 15-year-old Palestinian was shot during clashes with the Israeli military in the village of al-Khader, near Bethlehem. According to the statement, village resident Zaid Muhammad Ghnaim was critically wounded by IDF live fire in the neck and back, and was declared dead shortly after.

The military said that a number of suspects hurled stones and Molotov cocktails at Israeli forces while they were securing an intersection near the settlement of Efrat, and that the soldiers chased after the assailants.

During the chase the Palestinians threw stones and Molotov cocktails at the forces, who responded with live fire. Israeli forces gave Ghnaim first aid at the scene, and he was later evacuated to a hospital by the Palestinian Red Crescent.
