ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
STORY: Israeli troops killed a Palestinian teenager in the occupied West Bank on Friday (June 20), Palestinian medics said, as their forces continued a crackdown on Islamist militants while they searched for three Israeli teenagers missing for more than a week.
Mohammed Dudin, 15, was killed in the village of Dura, near Hebron in the southern West Bank, close to where the three Israeli teenagers went missing eight days ago. Israel says they were abducted by the Islamist Hamas group.
The youth was taken to hospital where he was officially pronounced dead. A witness said he posed no threat but he was shot with three bullets.
Palestinians clashed with Israeli troops at various locations across the West Bank and residents reported a number of other injuries.
Israel has said its West Bank operation is twofold: to find Gil-Ad Shaer and U.S.-Israeli national Naftali Fraenkel, both aged 16, and Eyal Yifrah, 19; and to deal a substantial blow to Hamas, a group dedicated to its destruction.
Dudin was the second Palestinian killed since Israel began its operation across the West Bank a week ago. Some 280 Palestinians had been detained by Thursday and troops had made more arrests overnight, the military said on Friday.
