United States officials confirmed the death of an American minor on Friday during West Bank clashes, NBC News reported. A relative identified the minor as 14-year-old Orwah Hammad, and said that his Father Abed Al- Wahhab will arrive Sunday from the United States to attend his son's funeral. Reuters reported that he was shot in the head. Tension has been high in the area as more Jews accompanied by police visit the holy site known to them as Temple Mount and to Muslims as Noble Sanctuary during the Sukkot holiday.
