A 14-year-old Palestinian boy was killed on Friday after being shot in the head in renewed clashes outside a police station in Gaza, Palestinian police said. Fathy Mushtaha was caught in a gun battle as members of a powerful Gaza family tried to storm the police station to free an incarcerated relative. In the exchange of gunfire, the boy was mistakenly shot in the head and died instantly, the police said. An attempt by the same family to free their relative sparked a deadly exchange on Thursday that killed a police officer and a civilian.
