An autopsy performed on Wednesday on the body of a Palestinian teenager killed last month during Nakba Day clashes in Beiytuna concluded that Nadim Nuwara, 17, had been killed by live fire, Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported.

According to the report, the autopsy results indicated that IDF forces were responsible for the teen's death during anti-Israel demonstration on May 15 in the West Bank.

Ma'an cited an unnamed source familiar with the autopsy proceedings as saying examiners had found bullet piercing in Nuwara's body, and located entry and exit marks of a bullet.

Forensic investigators were conducting tests on remaining shrapnel and fragments found during the examination, the source said.
