The IDF on Tuesday denied a Palestinian report that a 12-year-old child was killed during clashes with the army in al-Ram, north of Jerusalem earlier in the day.

According to the IDF, there were no IDF forces in the area where the Palestinians claim the boy was killed.

Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported that the boy, Muhye Muhammad Sidqi al-Tabbakhi, was killed in clashes that erupted when IDF troops raided al-Ram shooting live fire, rubber bullets and tear gas at Palestinian youths throwing rocks and bottles.
