Israeli, Palestinian Killed in Two Violent Incidents

A Palestinian protester hurls back a tear gas canister fired by Israeli troops during clashes in the West Bank village of Qusrah near Nablus

The Israeli military said the shooter had opened fire in self-defence as part of a group of settlers hiking near the village of Qusrah who had come under attack. A video from the scene showed that their exit was blocked by a group of Palestinians. The settlers then hid in a nearby cave until the Israeli forces evacuated them, according to the military.

Mohammad Amireh, a local anti-settlement activist, said that Palestinians performed Friday prayers in their olive groves, south of the village, expressing their condemnation of the killing of a Palestinian farmer by Israeli Jewish settlers in Nablus-district village of Qusra. The army said security forces were using riot-dispersal means to try to end the clashes and that one soldier was lightly hurt by a Molotov cocktail thrown by a Palestinian.

Israeli settlers attacked a number of Palestinians homes with rocks and pepper-sprayed two children, causing them severe suffocation on Friday in the occupied city of Hebron earlier this month.

Police are working to determine whether shooting the Palestinian, who threw stones at a group of teen boys on a hiking trip, was justified considering the level of danger he posed.

This group is a challenge, an honour, a chance, an opportunity...it's fire! Musa also became the first Nigerian player to score a brace in a World Cup finals match.

One of the parents escorting the group said they opened fire out of self-defense.

"The investigation is continuing and police units are searching for the suspect who fled the scene", said a police spokesman.

Israel bombed six targets in Gaza with two "terror infrastructure targets" Thursday, injuring at least two Palestinians in the process. When Mr Odeh refused, one of them shot him, Mr Daghlas added.

It was not immediately clear if the Israelis coordinated their hike with the military, as is generally required in the West Bank.
