Israeli soldiers have shot dead a Palestinian teenager during a raid on a refugee camp in the occupied West Bank town of Bethlehem. According to residents, Malek Shahin had come to protest against the arrest of two men when he was killed on Tuesday.

The Israeli army said it opened fire after protesters attacked them with pipe bombs.Shahin’s death and funeral later prompted a protest, as mourners marched towards the historic Rachel’s Tomb, where the confrontation with the Israeli military kicked off.

That street has become a flashpoint of confrontation over the last few months as Palestinian youth vent their anger and frustration over the occupation, Al Jazeera’s Stefanie Dekker, reporting from West Jerusalem, said.  “When you speak to them, many of them will tell you that they feel like the world has forgotten them,” she said, referring to the Palestinian protesters.

“There’s a simmering frustration here that is becoming a norm.” She described the situation in the occupied territories as “very tense”. In a second arrest raid on Tuesday, Israeli troops detained a Palestinian in the West Bank city of Ramallah in connection with a stabbing incident in October, the military said.
