The Palestinian Health Ministry reported a 17-year-old passed away early Friday from wounds suffered during clashes with Israel forces in the West Bank city of Jenin, where 10 other deaths have been reported so far.
The Palestinian Presidency spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeina said in a statement “this barbaric aggression (…) which is equivalent to declaring war on our people.”
The Foreign and Expatriates Ministry, on the other hand, strongly condemned the unrest, which caused more than 90 injuries, according to Palestinian health authorities´ latest report.
This twisted crime harmed the faithful inside and around the holy site, including women, children and the elderly, as well as first responders and journalists in site.
This incident proves Israel’s strategy of Judaizing East Jerusalem, he stressed.
The Palestinian Foreign Ministry blamed the Israeli authorities for “this crime and its consequences.”
