IDF Investigating Claims it Killed PA Teen in Dura


The Israel Defense Forces are investigating Palestinian Authority claims that Israeli soldiers shot 14-year-old Mohammed Dudin to death during Thursday-evening clashes in the southern Hevron Hills community of Dura, according to an IDF spokeswoman cited Friday morning by Agence France Presse. The spokeswoman said soldiers were attacked by Arabs throwing firebombs and rocks when they entered Dura to arrest a terror activist and responded with live fire.

Dudin was taken to the Alia hospital in Hebron, where officials determined his death was caused by a gun shot to his chest.
