Tensions escalate as Israeli force use live fire against Palestinian civilians

17 year old Palestinian Yazan Yacoub was shot in the chest and abdomen in Qalandya near Ramallah as the Israeli army continued taking punitive measures against Palestinians as a manhunt for 3 missing Israeli teenagers continue in the occupied West Bank.The army have further killed one man, injured dozens and arrested over 200 Palestinians.

Yazan Yacoub is now recovering from the bullet wounds. He claimed that he was unarmed and walking home from college when the Israeli army raided Qalandya.Hasan's family have been told that he will make a full recovery, however his father says the family no longer feel safe and worry for their children.

Professor of international law Hanna Issa says Israel's actions amount to war crimes and therefore they should be judged in international courts. Israeli forces arrested 41 people in the Nablus region last night, mostly members of Hamas.

The Palestinian national unity government says Israel is seeking to cut ties between Gaza and the West Bank.
