RAMALLAH — Israeli forces killed a Palestinian teenager Monday during a raid in the occupied West Bank, the Palestinian health ministry announced, as the army said soldiers fired at "armed suspects".

The ministry said 17-year-old Jibril Mohammed Kamal Al-Ladaa died after being "shot in the head" in the Aqabat Jabr refugee camp near the city of Jericho.

Six others were wounded, including three in serious condition, Palestinian health officials said.

The latest deadly raid brings to 101 the number of Palestinians killed in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict so far this year.
