On Sunday, Mohammed Sinokrot died from injuries after being shot by Israeli forces in the Wadi al-Joz neighborhood on August 31.
Following the news of his death, clashes broke out between Palestinians and Israelis in several areas of the occupied city, including Wadi al-Joz, the Issawiya and At-Tur.
Reports said that no one was injured in the clashes.
The 16-year-old Palestinian is said to have been shot in the head on his way to a mosque.
“There were no clashes in the area, he went for night prayers at the mosque and was bringing bread back home,” his uncle Muhtadi Sinokrot said. “This is an assassination,” he added.
The clashes in the area occurred two weeks after a ceasefire ended a 50-day Israeli onslaught on the besieged Gaza Strip.
The Israeli war ended on August 26 by an Egyptian-brokered truce, which took effect after negotiations in Cairo. The deal stipulates the ease of Israel’s seven-year-old blockade as well as the provision of a guarantee that Palestinian demands will be met.
Almost 2,140 Palestinians, mostly civilians, including women, children and the elderly, were killed in the Israeli onslaught on Gaza. Around 11,000 others were also injured.
Tel Aviv says 72 Israelis were killed in the conflict, but Palestinian resistance movement Hamas says the number is much higher.
The Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement has said it fired over 3,000 rockets on dozens of Israeli cities during the Israeli war.
