The Palestinian Authority said on Saturday that it was still hoping that the international Criminal Court (ICC) would launch an investigation into Israeli “violations and war crimes” against the Palestinians. In response to clashes over the weekend between Palestinians and IDF troops in the West Bank – during which soldiers reportedly shot dead 17-year-old Mohammed Munir al-Tamimi in the village of Nabi Saleh, northwest of Ramallah – the PA said that such an investigation would “put an end to dealing with Israel as a state above the law that escapes any punishment.”

Palestinian sources said that Tamimi was shot in the stomach on Friday night during clashes with IDF soldiers who entered the village. He was rushed to the Yasser Arafat Hospital in the town of Salfit, where he was pronounced dead. The IDF said that dozens of Palestinians threw rocks as part of the demonstration, and in response the IDF used crowd dispersal tactics.
