A 13 year old boy was shot dead by Israeli police during clashes south of al-Bireh, in the Ramallah district. Police fired a live round at the child hitting him in in the neck.


Ahmad Sharaka, a resident of the nearby Jalazone refugee camp, was rushed to the Palestinian Medical Complex in Ramallah where doctors operated on him before he succumbed to his wounds.


Today, thousands gathered in Jalazone for his funeral.


Sharaka's death brings the total number of Palestinians killed to 24 since the beginning of October. He is also the eighth child to be shot dead by Israeli forces in the same time period.


At a protest in al-Balu area of southern Bireh, another Palestinian was shot in the leg with a live round whilst another was injured with a rubber bullet.


As clashes escalate across the occupied Palestinian territory, the Palestinian Red Crescent counted at least 55 Palestinians shot and injured with live fire, and 77 injured by rubber-coated steel bullets.
