RAMALLAH, June 16 (Xinhua) -- A young Palestinian was killed early Monday by Israeli soldiers in the West Bank city of Ramallah, medical sources said.
A 20-year-old man was shot dead during confrontations in Ramallah between Palestinian protesters and Israeli soldiers.
Another young man was critically shot in the back, according to the sources.
These are the first Palestinian causalities since Thursday when Israel announced that three Israeli youths missed near Hebron City. The Israeli government accused the Hamas militant group of abducting the teenagers.
