A Palestinian youth was killed and another injured on Monday evening by Israeli gunfire in Jenin.

Israeli media sources claimed that two armed Palestinians opened fire at Israeli soldiers at al-Jalama checkpoint, and the latter responded, killing one of them and injuring the other.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society said that a seriously injured youth was taken to hospital for treatment, but the medical crews could not reach the other.

According to eyewitnesses, the Israeli soldiers stationed at al-Jalama checkpoint opened fire at two Palestinian youths on a motorbike killing one of them.
