A Palestinian teen was killed Thursday after he threw stones at Israeli soldiers, the Israel Defense Forces claimed, while Palestinian reports said Israeli soldiers had prevented paramedics from reaching him.

Palestinians identified the teen as 15-year-old Khaled Bahar Ahmed Bahar.

According to the army, the Palestinian was shot in the upper body after he pelted an army patrol jeep with stones in Beit Omar, near Hebron in the West Bank. After being hit with the stones, the soldiers exited the jeep and were again pelted with rocks, injuring one lightly.

According to the IDF, the soldiers initiated the army's arrest protocol, at which point the Palestinian was killed. The army launched an investigation into the incident.

Palestinian health officials released a statement on the death of the Palestinian teen and claimed that after he had been shot, Israeli soldiers prevented a Red Crescent team from gaining immediate access to him. The Palestinian, they said, was dead when the medical team was able to reach him.

The statement did not identify the man or address the reasons for the incident.

The municipality in Beit Omar said that the Army had promised to deliver his body to his family on Friday.
