RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) - Relatives say Israeli soldiers shot dead a 15-year-old Palestinian boy in the West Bank on Saturday.

Wajdi Ramahi from the Jalazoun refugee camp near Ramallah said his son, Wajeeh, was killed by a shot to the back. Ramahi said his son was playing football on school grounds and then went to a nearby grocery store to buy something to drink. The father said his son was shot from an Israeli army watchtower in the nearby Beit El settlement. He said his son was dead on arrival at a Ramallah hospital.

The Israeli military says it is looking into the report.

The Israelis and Palestinians are currently engaged in backchannel peace talks after a five-year lull.
