Israeli soldiers shoot, kill Palestinian youth south of Nablus

Jan. 31, 2015 8:21 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 1, 2015 9:55 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and killed a young Palestinian man and injured another near Nablus late Saturday, local sources said.

Locals said Israeli troops opened fire at a group of Palestinian youths after they threw Molotov cocktails at Israeli setter vehicles driving on a bypass road near the village of Burin south of Nablus.

Ahmed Ibrahim Jaber al-Najjar, 19, was killed and another Palestinian was lightly injured.

A large number of Israeli troops rushed to the area following the shootings.

An Israeli army spokeswoman told Ma'an that a group of Palestinians hurled Molotovs at "a civilian road" in the area.

Soldiers responded by shooting live fire at the Palestinians' "lower extremities," she said.

The spokeswoman said two hits were confirmed -- one Palestinian was hit in the leg and another was hit and injured.

Reports of the second Palestinian's death "are being reviewed," she said. "An investigation will be opened into the incident."
