A teen terrorist boy is dead after being shot while throwing stones at Israeli soldiers, according to a statement released by the Israeli military.

Adnan Abu Khater, 16, was killed on Thursday, near the border fence in the northern Gaza Strip.

A spokesperson for the emergency services in Gaza said in a statement that Khater died of his wounds after soldiers shot him in the leg east of Jabaliya.

The Israeli army said that soldiers opened fire to disperse violent demonstrators, who threw stones at soldiers. The rioters also rolled burning tires at the soldiers.

“During attempts to disperse the protesters, soldiers shot at the legs of some of the main instigators,” an Israeli military spokesperson said.
