The Israeli regime's forces have fatally shot a Palestinian teenager in the western part of the Tel Aviv-occupied West Bank.

The murder took place in the town of Azzun, east of the Qalqilya city, on Wednesday, the official Palestinian Wafa news agency reported.

Citing the Palestinian health ministry, the report identified the victim as 14-year-old Fadi Saeed Suleiman.

"Suleiman died a result of a direct gunshot wound that penetrated his heart," the report specified.

Upon being afflicted with the wound, the teenager was rushed to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.

The regime has escalated its acts of aggression against Palestinians across the West Bank since early October 2023, when it began a genocidal war on the besieged Gaza Strip.

Also on Wednesday, Israeli troops killed a Palestinian young man and injured seven others at the Jenin refugee camp in the northern West Bank before dawn.

Previously, Israeli forces had gunned down at least three Palestinians in the city of Nablus, which is likewise located in northern West Bank, within a single day on Sunday.

Including the fatalities, some 402 Palestinians have been killed by the forces throughout the occupied territory since October 7.

On the other hand, the aggression against Gaza has so far claimed the lives of nearly 29,100 Palestinians, mostly women and children, leaving some 70,000 others wounded.
