IDF soldiers were accused of killing a Palestinian boy during a confrontation with rock-throwing protesters in the West Bank on Sunday, said a relative who witnessed the incident said.

Youssef al-Anati said his 11-year-old nephew, Khalil, was shot dead even though he was not taking part in the disturbances near the city of Hebron. The boy was taken to a local hospital, which said he had been hit in the back with a live bullet.

The IDF said it was checking the report.
