HEBRON (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian teenager was hit by live fire from Israeli forces during clashes in Hebron, witnesses said, a day after a 17-year-old was shot dead by troops in the city.

Nasser Mohammad Wasfi Al-Sharabati, 17, was hit in the chest by a bullet in the Bab al-Zawiye area, a Ma'an reporter said.

Medics said he was in a serious condition.

An Israeli army spokesman said he would look into the incident.

Confrontations broke out overnight between Hebron residents and Israeli soldiers, who deployed to the area in large numbers after 17-year-old Muhammad Ziad Awad Salaymah was shot dead by an Israeli border guard in Hebron's Old City.

Emergency services spokesman Nasser Kabbajh said during Thursday's clashes 26 Palestinians were taken to Hebron governmental hospital and 12 to a medical clinic. Another 51 people were treated at the scene, he said.

Some 21 Palestinians were wounded by rubber bullets during the clashes, he said.

If another intifada breaks out, there will be a cessation of work for Arab workers and contractors. There will be no political correctness anymore in terms of our taking action in defense of our own people. We, Israelis, have had enough! Our government is turning all the more to the right thanks to Arab incursions, rioting, missiles and kidnappings. We will not put up with it anymore. Never Again!

Live bullets against young people throwing stones. The first boy was killed on his 17th birthday. The Palestine Center for Human Rights in Gaza reported he was on his way home with a birthday cake. Now, the army shoots another lad the same age. It is a mad, mad world in the Israeli army.

So, what are you DOING that brings on the "fire"? Take a look at yourself before you point your one finger at the other -- because when you point that one finger, there are ALWAYS three fingers pointing back at yourself.

What is with these Arabs, the kid brandishes a gun, and is killed. So what! Threatening people with guns whether the gun works or not is suicide, in the neighborhood where he lives. 17 years old is old enough to know what you are doing is madness.

Maan? It's enraging enough,to hear about more innocent Palestinian children being murdered,by trigger-happy IOF cowards dressed in US-tax-payer-bought bullet-proof vests,shields,helmets & bearing HI-TECH weapons against relatively unarmed,INNOCENT civilians.But,please remember to refer to their weapons correctly? Rubber-coated METAL BULLETS,designed to maximize damage,internally.Obviously 'Never Again' meant for white Zionists only,to AshkeNazi Fascists.Sieg Heil Zion!All the way DOWN,DOWN,down!

To Ag #3 'So, what are you DOING that brings on the "fire"? ' There are two salient points. They are in their own land. Those shooting them are invaders. Try leaving if their behavior displeases you.

To Ag #3 'because when you point that one finger, there are ALWAYS three fingers pointing back at yourself.' Make that two fingers pointing at you. I've got a finger for you as well.

"Live bullets against throwing stones" is NOT balanced, but Israel is seeking peace and security, rather than balance, and as Rob-1 says, Israel "will not put up with it anymore", so: -a- If Pals in Hebron stop playing with the "Lions" (of Israel), Then they won't have to feel their "Claws" (bullets), and -b- the same if also true for all of the West Bank and Gaza, where NO "resistance"/rockets means NO soldiers/strikes !!!

When in Palestine, kill Palestinians. Isn't that why they are here? Perhaps Palestinians require proper military training: it's the right of every country. Every Palestinian citizen should have a sniper rifle and the training to use it. That would cut down on the occupation force's indiscriminate murders.

The comment from HR is a real call to kill more Palestinians... It is shameful that Ma'an gives voice to such criminals !

If another intifada breaks out, I hope and pray that the rest of the world will at last stand with the Palestians and help them and as far as I'm concerned they may shell the whole of Israhell. And those words come out of the mouth of someone who loves peace and talking instead of violence but I, and the biggest part of the world with me, am fed up with the Zionist agression, lies and racism. Enough of your stealing land, arresting and killing children and assaulting human rights! NEVER AGAIN!!!

Read psalms Souzan, something about the hypocrits saying they are for peace when in their hearts is only malice.. I think people like you sum it up. At least Mel and a few other posters say seig heil and are honest about wishing to destroy the Jews, so is Hamas. Arafat, the twisted PAS and you so called leftists are snakes who only hate Israel and care not for the welfare of the palestinians. If you cared you would promote peace and understanding, not violence...

To Lochem #14: ' At least Mel and a few other posters say seig heil and are honest about wishing to destroy the Jews, so is Hamas.' You're lying, of course. I've never seen any evidence that Mel and Hamas want the Jews to do anything beyond letting go of stolen property.

To tirana #4 'What is with these Arabs, the kid brandishes a gun, and is killed. So what! Threatening people with guns whether the gun works or not is suicide...' There is the minor detail that the Israeli story is probably false. Notice (aside from everything else) their failure to even produce said gun.

You are an idiot, to be suggesting to arm would-be war criminals, so you probably also suggest that nations advocating genocide, like Iran, should be allowed to acquire WMDs, or develop Nuclear Weapons.

Regardless of how the world stands, If another intifada breaks out, the Palestine situation will forever remain unchanged, in that - THE ONLY ROUTE TO CHANGE - and a better life for Palestinians, - IS TO NEGOTIATE WITH ISRAEL - regardless of how unfair Palestinians see Israeli terms (no preconditions) are to begin negotiations, and will also likely be (no 1967 borders & refugee return) to concule negotiations !!

17, the sniper rifle is a defensive weapon. Now don't you feel silly?
