Two reported killed in West Bank violence


A Palestinia­n man who entered a settlement in the occupied West Bank armed with knives and explosive devices was fatally shot by an Israeli settler on Friday, the military said.

Hours later, a 16-year-old Palestinia­n died after being critically wounded when Israeli troops opened fire on stonethrow­ing Palestinia­ns in northern West Bank, the Palestinia­n Health Ministry said.

The violence comes a day after a Palestinia­n gunman wounded Israelis in Tel Aviv. It is one of the deadliest periods of unrest between the two sides in years.

The Israeli military said the armed Palestinia­n slipped into a farm near the settlement of Karnei Shomron and was fatally shot by a settler overseeing the land.

The teen, Amir Ouda, was wounded close to a checkpoint near the town of Qalqilya, the Palestinia­n Health Ministry said. There was no immediate comment from the Israeli military.

Hours earlier, Israeli security forces entered the Palestinia­n village of Naalin and prepared to demolish the family house of the Palestinia­n suspected of carrying out the Tel Aviv attack.
