  • Israeli, Palestinian Killed in Two Violent Incidents

The Israeli military said that after a group of Palestinians threw stones at a group of Israeli settlers - school children on a bar mitzvah hike - a parent accompanying them opened fire.

A United Nations agency that monitors incidents said earlier this year that an increase in settler violence had occurred alongside a major rise in Palestinian attacks against Israelis, the vast majority of which involved stone-throwing at vehicles.

Israel bombed six targets in Gaza with two "terror infrastructure targets" Thursday, injuring at least two Palestinians in the process. It said two people were injured by the rock throwing and that the settlers also hurled stones at ambulances from the Red Crescent that came to treat the wounded.

Towards the end of last month, Israeli settlers poisoned and stole olives from Palestinian land in the Qalqiliya village of Jit in the occupied West Bank.

Palestinian sources identified the dead man as Mahmoud Odeh, 48, a farmer from Qusra.

"One of the rioters was hit by gunfire", the statement added. "IDF forces arrived at the site and rescued all the hikers".




According to human rights activists, the slain Palestinian was working in his field when he was shot, and the mob only arrived at the scene later.

Israeli medics treated him at the scene, but he died from his wounds. Israeli police said they were investigating the incident.

Ghassan Daghlas told the Associated Press that Mr Odeh had been at work when a group of settlers trespassed onto his land and then ordered him to move.

An Israeli occupation army and settler council in the West Bank claimed that the Israeli settlers were little boys, and were on vacation.

According to the right-wing legal organization Honenu, after the parents in question were released from hospital, they went to a police station in the settlement of Ariel to file a complaint against the stone-throwers.
