- Story Text: Hundreds marched on Tuesday (August 24) in a funeral procession for a Palestinian teen who was killed in clashes in the Israeli-occupied West Bank city of Nablus.
The Palestinian Health Ministry said a 15-year-old was killed overnight in a clash with Israeli soldiers.
The Israeli military said its troops came under fire during an arrest raid near the city of Nablus.
A soldier opened fire on a suspect who was about to throw a large object at the forces from a rooftop, the military said, and "identified a hit".
The health ministry said a 15-year-old Palestinian was killed in the confrontation.
Also on Tuesday Israeli warplanes bombed Hamas sites in Gaza in response to incendiary balloons launched from the Palestinian enclave that caused brush fires in southern Israel, the Israeli military said.
