The Israeli army has shot dead a 13-year-old Palestinian during clashes at a refugee camp near
Bethlehem, police and emergency services said.

Abdel Rahman Abdullah was struck in the chest by Israeli fire at the Aida refugee camp on Monday, the sources said.

He is the second Palestinian teenager killed by Israeli soldiers over the past 24 hours as clashes have spread across the territory.

On Sunday night, Hutheifa Suleiman, an 18-year-old Palestinian, was fatally shot by Israeli forces during clashes in the West Bank city of Tulkarm.

Clashes have spread after two recent attacks killed four Israelis and wounded a two-year-old child.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has pledged “a fight to the death against Palestinian terror” and announced new security measures.

Palestinian youths throwing stones have faced off against Israeli security forces using both live rounds and rubber bullets.

Jewish settlers have also clashed with Palestinians.

There have been fears that the sporadic violence could spin out of control, with some warning of the risk of a third Palestinian intifada.
