JENIN, Jan. 29 (Xinhua) -- The Palestinian Ministry of Health said a 19-year-old Palestinian was killed and five others wounded early Sunday by Israeli soldiers in a Jenin refugee camp, in northern West Bank.
Palestinian sources said clashes erupted between Palestinian youth and Israeli forces after the latter stormed into the camp.
Medics at the Jenin Public Hospital said that Mohammad Abu Khalifa was killed due to a gunshot in the back and that the five wounded are in in moderate condition.
The medics said Israeli soldiers used live ammunition to disperse protestors, while witnesses said young men hurled stones and homemade grenades on the soldiers.
Israeli media outlets, citing military sources, said "violent rioters attacked and hurled pipe bombs at Israeli forces at the camp" but no injuries were reported.
The latest clashes came amid a wave of violence between Palestinians and Israelis since October 2015, which has killed more than 340 Palestinians, one Jordanian and over 40 Israelis, according to official data.
