Israeli troops have shot dead a Palestinian teenager and wounded several others at a refugee camp near the West Bank town of Bethlehem, Palestinian medics say.
According to medical sources, the Palestinian man was shot by a live round that penetrated his left shoulder and lodged in his chest, causing a severe bleeding.
Israeli troops prevented medics from reaching the seriously wounded teen and he bled to death before the medics managed to move him to the al-Yamama hospital, the sources said.
According to the residents of the Aida refugee camp in northern Bethlehem, the Israeli forces raided the camp with police dogs and used tear gas and stun grenades against Palestinians.
The residents said the Israeli forces also targeted ambulances that tried to reach the injured Palestinians and an ambulance driver suffered the suffocation caused by excessive gas inhalation.

men.. this people are in refugee camps, they are controlled to their teeth by Israel forces ... they are considered garbage to them, they have no respect for Palestinians, Lebanese and others.. In a situation where people are fighting to stay alive (after being shot) the last thing an ambulance will carry is weapons.. in this situation a young boy was dying, other were gas or stunt and needed help, but Israel military didn't allow ambulance to go in.
