Israel army: 2 hurt by Palestinian fire

May 14, 2010 8:21 P.M. (Updated: May 16, 2010 10:07 A.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an - Palestinians opened fire at an Israeli vehicle north of Ramallah late Friday, the Israeli military said, apparently in the same area where Israeli settlers allegedly killed a Palestinian teenager a day earlier.

Two Israeli civilians were lightly injured by shattered glass, a military spokesman said. Forces were searching the area, he said.

Fatah's armed wing said its forces opened fire on a car belonging to settlers near the Ramallah junction at 6:45pm. The Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades said its forces confirmed a direct hit on the vehicle's occupants.

The attack came in response to the murder of a Palestinian boy by Israeli settlers the day before, the group said in a statement. It also amounted to a rejection of the start of indirect peace talks, the statement said.

The teenager allegedly shot dead by settlers late Thursday was identified Friday as Ayssar Yasser Al-Zaben, 16. Security sources said the teenager was shot after throwing stones at his attackers' car on Highway 60.

Palestinian medical sources said Al-Zaben's body was found three hours after he died. An examination at the Government Hospital in Ramallah revealed that he was killed by a single shot in the upper back, penetrating his heart, medical officials said. The teenager bled to death, medics said.

Israeli military sources confirmed finding the boy's body. These sources confirmed that shots were fired in the area, as well as reports that children were throwing rocks at settler cars, but did not blame settlers.
