Israeli forces shoot, kill teenager in Jerusalem

Amid heightened tensions, a 15-year-old Palestinian, Muhammad Tariq Abu Sneina, tragically lost his life after being shot by Israeli forces in the occupied Old City of Jerusalem.

Local sources report his death due to severe wounds sustained during the incident, sparking outrage and grief among Palestinians.

The Wafa news agency reveals that Abu Sneina, hailing from al-Eizariya, was allegedly targeted by Israeli troops under the suspicion of attempting a stabbing attack on al-Wad Street.

Israeli media claims support the narrative of self-defence, while Palestinian witnesses offer a different perspective, alleging excessive use of force.

The incident prompts widespread condemnation and demands for transparent investigations into the circumstances surrounding the shooting.

The army's swift cordon of the area following the shooting adds to the sense of urgency and concern, raising questions about accountability and the protection of civilians in volatile regions like Jerusalem's Old City.
