OCCUPIED JERUSALEM — The Israeli occupation forces killed Palestinian teenager on Thursday, the fourth deadly attack in the occupied territory in as many days.

The Palestinian health ministry named the teenager killed as Haytham Hani Mubarak, 17.

Palestinian news agency Wafa reported that six Palestinians had been arrested in an overnight raid in Jenin refugee camp, a flashpoint in the northern West Bank.

Twelve people were treated for injuries following a separate Israeli army raid in Nablus, also in the West Bank, the Palestinian Red Crescent said.

Israel has stepped up operations in the northern West Bank in particular and carried out near nightly raids on Palestinian-administered towns and cities, sparking frequent clashes with residents.

On Wednesday, a Palestinian was killed during an Israeli raid in Al-Fara camp near Jenin. Two more were killed during incursions earlier this week into Jenin and Qabatiya to its south.
