Laith Abu Naim, 16, is the fourth Palestinian minor to be shot dead by Israeli forces in 2018 to date.
The Palestinian Health Ministry announced this evening that Laith was killed by a shot to the head.
Laith was unarmed. His family says an Israeli soldier shot the boy at a distance of two metres during clashes in their village of Mughayer, northeast of Ramallah in the occupied West Bank.
He was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital in Ramallah.
