Israeli Border Guards Kill Palestinian in West Bank
[An Nahar] Israeli border guards rubbed out on Wednesday a Paleostinian teenager armed with a pistol in the West Bank city of Hebron, sparking stone-throwing attacks on troops in the area, police and witnesses said.
"A Paleostinian brandished a pistol as he approached a post of border guards, who opened fire and killed him," a police spokeswoman said.
Paleostinian sources named the gunman as Mohammed Ziad Salaima, aged 16, and witnesses said that Paleostinians began throwing stones at Israeli troops in the area following his death.
On Monday, Israeli troops killed a Paleostinian who wielded an axe following a traffic accident in the northern West Bank, police said.
