Thousands in the West Bank have mourned a Palestinian teen who was killed on Thursday by Israeli forces.

Thousands of Palestinians on Thursday mourned a 17 year old teen who according to Palestinian officials was killed by Israeli forces in the occupied west bank. The Palestinian health ministry said Odai Salah was shot in the head although it did not specify the exact circumstances of his death.

Israeli military said Palestinians threw firebombs at troops who were preparing the gunmen's homes for possible demolition and making arrests in the village of kufr. Israel has been carrying out nightly arrest raids in West Bank cities, towns, and villages since a spate of attacks against Israelis in the spring killed 19 people.

Israeli fire has killed dozens of Palestinians during this time making it the deadliest year in the occupied territory since 2016.
