A 12-year-old Palestinian boy was killed Wednesday after apparently being shot by Israeli soldiers near the West Bank town of Beit Ummar, according to the Palestinian Authority Health Ministry. The IDF acknowledged that its troops had opened fire in the area, saying that soldiers were pursuing suspects in a vehicle who had tried to bury the body of a newborn baby near a military post. Palestinian Authority health officials identified the boy as Mohammad al-Alaami, a resident of Beit Ummar, saying he was shot in the chest by Israeli soldiers. Al-Alaami was allegedly sitting in a car at the entrance to the town when he was shot.

The boy was evacuated by medics in critical condition to Hebron’s al-Ahli Hospital, but later died of his injuries, the Health Ministry said. According to the Israel Defense Forces, a group of soldiers near Beit Ummar saw several Palestinians digging near a military post close to the town entrance before leaving the scene in a car. When the soldiers approached the site, they found the body of a dead day-old baby in a plastic bag, the army said.
