A Palestinian teenager was killed and four others injured by Israeli forces, during clashes in the occupied East Jerusalem neighborhood of al-Issawiya.

RNA - Heavily armed Israeli policemen opened gunfire at dozens of Palestinians who were protesting against the Israeli raid of the neighborhood, killing Mohammad Samir Ebeid, 20, by a live shot in the heart, WAFA reported.

Four other protesters were reportedly injured.

Israel occupied the West Bank and East Jerusalem al-Quds during the Six Day War in 1967. It later annexed East Jerusalem al-Quds in a move not recognized by the international community.

Tensions have been running high in the Israeli-occupied territories and the besieged Gaza Strip since December 2017, when US President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem al-Quds as Israel’s “capital” and later moved the US embassy from Tel Aviv to the occupied Palestinian city.

The decision has emboldened the Israeli regime which regularly opens fire on Palestinians.

Human rights groups have repeatedly slammed Tel Aviv for its shoot-to-kill policy, saying many of the Palestinians killed in such attacks did not pose any serious threat to Israelis.
