Ramallah, February 9, 2024—Israeli forces shot and killed a 16-year-old Palestinian boy in the northern occupied West Bank today.

Moath Ashraf Faleh Bani Shamsa, 16, was shot in the back by Israeli forces outside his home around 5:15 p.m. on February 9 in the Palestinian village of Beita, southeast of Nablus in the northern occupied West Bank, according to documentation collected by Defense for Children International – Palestine. Moath allegedly threw a few stones toward Israeli military vehicles withdrawing from Beita near his home, and one vehicle abruptly stopped then quickly backed up toward him. Moath tried to run away, but a soldier opened the back door of the vehicle and shot him in the upper right side of his back from a distance of no more than 50 meters (164 feet).
