Israeli forces shot dead a Palestinian teenager during a raid on the central part of the West Bank, amid rising tensions in the occupied territories fueled by the Israeli army incursions, arrests and arbitrary killings.

Citing the Ministry of Health, Palestine's official WAFA news agency reported that 18-year-old Thayer Khalil Yazouri was shot in the heart during confrontation at Jabal al-Tawil area in the city of Al-Bireh, situated 15 kilometers (9.3 miles) north of Al-Quds, on Wednesday, according to Press TV.

Palestinian security sources said clashes broke out between local residents and Israeli soldiers, who fired live ammunition and rubber coated bullets to disperse the crowd.

The sources added that a 17-year-old boy was shot with live bullets in the leg.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said on Monday 50 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces since the beginning of the current year, amid a flare-up of tensions between the Palestinians and the usurping regime in the occupied territories.

In a statement, carried by WAFA news agency, the ministry published the names of 50 Palestinians killed by Israeli soldiers since January, 49 of them from the occupied West Bank and one from the besieged Gaza Strip.

The list included two women, 24-year-old Maha Zaatari from Al-Khalil and 47-year-old Ghada Sabatin from Bethlehem, who were killed by the regime’s forces on April 10.

One of the oldest Palestinians in the list was 80-year-old Omar Assad from Ramallah who was killed on January 13. The youngest victim was 13-year Quasi Hamamreh from the same city who was shot dead on April 13.

Several other teenage Palestinians are in the list, including 14-year-old Mohammad Salah from Bethlehem who was shot dead on February 22.

According to the statement, the list included 25 Palestinians in their 20s, four in their 30s, three in their 40s, and two in their 80s.

The one from the besieged Gaza Strip was 27-year-old Mahmoud Arram who was killed on Sunday in the northern West Bank district of Tulkarm.

Israeli regime has escalated its deadly attacks against Palestinians in the run-up to Ramadan and sustained the violence throughout the holy fasting month, stirring up anti-Tel Aviv sentiments throughout the occupied territories.

The Israeli regime has also ramped up its violent attacks on Palestinian worshipers in the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in the occupied Old City of Al-Quds in recent weeks.
