Ramallah - A Palestinian teenager was shot dead by Israeli forces during a clash at a checkpoint north of the West Bank city of Ramallah on Sunday, the Palestinian health ministry said.

It identified the fatality as 13-year-old Ahmad Sharake and said approximately 20 Palestinians were wounded by rubber bullets in the same clash near the Jewish settlement of Beit El.

Sharake, from the nearby Jalazun refugee camp, was evacuated to Ramallah in critical condition before being pronounced dead.

His death comes as more than 10 days of clashes between Israeli forces and Palestinians in the West Bank, east Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip accompanied by a series of Palestinian stabbing attacks targeting Jews threaten to spiral into a full-scale uprising.
