The rights group B’Tselem decried Israel’s “excessive and unwarranted use of lethal gunfire” as its forces killed seven more Palestinians in the last week, and a woman died of her injuries after being shot at a checkpoint in November.
An Israeli army spokesperson told the Ma’an News Agency that the boy had charged at soldiers with a knife.
A Palestinian ambulance driver told Ma’an that soldiers prevented medical teams from treating the teen.
“No Israelis were injured during the incident,” the agency added.
The Quds news website reported that Nasasra’s body is being withheld by Israel.
Israel is holding the bodies of dozens of Palestinians killed in alleged attacks, including more than 12 children.
