Palestinian boy, ten sheep killed by Israeli settler bus

April 8, 2008 10:12 A.M. (Updated: April 8, 2008 10:12 A.M.)
Nablus - Ma'an - An Israeli settler bus ran over a 15-year-old Palestinian shepherd named Sharif Shtaya on a bypass road near the West Bank city of Nablus late on Monday afternoon, witnesses said.

Witnesses said the bus "deliberately" struck the boy while he was attempting to cross the road with his flock of sheep. Ten sheep and a donkey were also killed. The bus was passing through the Palestinian village of Salim on the way to the settlement Elon Moreh.

Palestinian medics said the Israeli military handed over Shtaya's corpse to the Palestinian Red Crescent.

Settler bypass roads, some reserved for Israeli use exclusively, crisscross the occupied West Bank, connecting Israeli settlements with one another and with Israel.
