Israeli security forces shot dead 24-year-old Ahmad Salim in clashes that took place in the northern half of the West Bank, the Palestinian Authority Health Ministry said on Monday

 

An IDF spokeswoman said the army was looking into reports that Salim was shot dead in Jayyous, a village near Qalqiliya, where she said dozens of Palestinian were hurling rocks at Israeli forces who responded with riot dispersal means and live fire. 

 

Since US President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and initiated the relocation of the US Embassy to the city in early December, small, violent clashes between Israeli security forces and young Palestinians have frequently broken out.
