Israeli forces on Saturday killed a Palestinian boy from the Jalazoun refugee camp in the West Bank city of Ramallah.

Wajeh Wajdy al-Ramahi, 14, died after an Israeli sniper reportedly shot him in the back while he was standing in front of the main school in the camp.

"The Israeli sniper shot my son as if he hunted a bird," his shocked father told Anadolu Agency.

The boy was admitted to the intensive care unit in Ramallah's Palestine Medical Complex.

Medical sources said attempts to save his life had failed because the place of the injury was fatal.

"My son was standing near the Refuge camp school and an Israeli sniper shot him in his bag," sobbed his father.

"There were no clashes near the refugee camp," he insisted.

According to the slain boy's family, his body would be laid to rest Sunday after the noon prayers.
