RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) -- A Palestinian hospital official says a teen was killed during clashes with the Israeli military in the West Bank.

A relative identified the teen as 14-year-old Orwah Hamed and said he was born in the United States.

Another 12 Palestinians were wounded in the clashes, a hospital official said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak with the media.

The Israeli military said soldiers "prevented an attack" by opening fire on a Palestinian who was throwing fire-bombs on a highway Friday evening.

Tensions have been high for months in Jerusalem and the West Bank. This week a Palestinian drove his car into a Jerusalem train station, killing a 3-month-old baby and wounding eight other people.
