A Palestinian youth was shot dead on Sunday morning and another one injured by Israeli occupation forces during their raid on Balata refugee camp, east of Nablus in the occupied West Bank.

Palestine's News Agency (WAFA) quoted the Palestinian Red Crescent Society as saying that the Palestinian youth was shot in the back with live ammunition by Israeli occupation soldiers during the raid in Balata, and was subsequently rushed to hospital for medical treatment.

Earlier at dawn, Israeli occupation forces raided the eastern area of the camp, where confrontations erupted between the Israeli occupations forces and Palestinians. Israeli troops used live ammunition against the residents, resulting in casualties.
