Palestinian teenager thought killed in Israel shooting found alive
Basel Basbous, 19, was shot as Israeli forces on Tuesday morning stormed a camp north of the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah.
He was initially pronounced dead, along with two others, who were killed in the raid on the Jalazone refugee camp.
Israeli forces took him away and the corpse of Khaled Fadi Anbar, 21, before Palestinians were able to check on their condition.

He was later found to be alive and is being treated for his injuries at an Israeli hospital, said the Palestinian Commission of Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs.
He was shot in his left hand and left foot and underwent surgery at the Israeli Shaare Zedek Hospital and is currently being detained.
The commission says a session to extend Basbous' detention will be held next Thursday in the infamous Israeli military court Ofer.
Israel has illegally occupied the West Bank since 1967. It frequently conducts raids in residential areas and refugee camps in which Palestinians are often injured and killed.
More than 600,000 Israeli Jews live in settlements in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem, in constructions considered illegal under international law.
