HEBRON (Ma'an) -- A teenage Palestinian boy was found dead in a well in the town of Sair east of Hebron in the southern occupied West Bank on Monday.

Locals told Ma'an that the family of 14-year-old Hamdi Fahmi Tarawa declared him missing on Monday afternoon and began searching for him.

The sources said family members used mosque loudspeakers to ask people to report to the family if they had any information about the boy. Tarawa's body was eventually found in a newly built water well in the town.

Palestinian Police Spokesman Luay Irzeiqat said police have opened an investigation into the incident and that the DA office has decided to send the body for forensic tests to determine the cause of death.
