Israeli troops shot dead a Palestinian teenager and wounded another person Friday during a pre-dawn raid on the Ein Beit Ilma refugee in the West Bank city of Nablus, relatives of the dead boy said. They named him as Amer Basiouny, 15, and said he was hit when he went out on the roof of the family home to look after gunfire erupted in his neighborhood. The IDF said troops searching for wanted Palestinians shot one armed man and another person who threw an object, at soldiers. The army had no information on the condition of either casualty.
