OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)-- A Palestinian boy died Saturday morning after he was shot in the stomach during clashes with Israeli occupation soldiers in Jerusalem's Silwan district a day earlier.
He is considered the first person killed in the third intifada set to mark the 63rd Nakba on May 15.
The boy, Milad Samir Ayyash, 16, from Silwan south of the Aqsa Mosque died this morning in the Al-Maqasid charity hospital after he was shot by the Israeli occupation soldiers during the clashes that broke out in the Al-Tour neighborhood.
His body was taken to his home as shock and tension prevailed in the region. The funeral will be held later Saturday.
Nearly 40 Palestinians were injured after Israeli soldiers shot metal and rubber bullets at civilians as violent clashes broke out in several Jerusalem neighborhoods during the beginnings of the third intifada.
Wide-ranging calls have been made for a third intifada on Facebook
