A Palestinian teenager has succumbed to wounds he sustained one month ago when he was shot by the Israeli army in the occupied West Bank.
The Palestinian health ministry announced that Mohammad Fadi Nouri, 16, died on Thursday.
The teen’s death was announced as Palestinians in occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank began a one-day general strike and called for confrontations with Israeli forces.
Thursday’s shutdown came in response to the killing of another Palestinian, 22-year-old Uday Tamimi, on Wednesday night.
Israeli authorities accused Tamimi of an October 8 shooting at the main checkpoint into the Shuafat refugee camp in East Jerusalem, in which one Israeli soldier was killed and another wounded.
Following a 12-day manhunt, Israeli forces killed Tamimi in a shootout after he allegedly carried out a second shooting near the illegal Israeli settlement of Maaleh Adumim in the West Bank.
