Just another kid killed by "the Brave Little Domocracy" for throwing stones, damn those Palestinian Parents, "there should be a law", making those poor young Israeli soldiers, pick off kids from their tanks for throwing rocks, damn those Palestinians, do anything to make Israel look bad!
Palestinian, 15, killed by IDF gunfire in Nablus
IDF troops shot dead a 15-year-old Palestinian during clashes Saturday with dozens of young Palestinian stone-throwers in the West Bank city of Nablus, doctors said.

Residents said more soldiers and tanks were deployed Saturday in Nablus and in adjacent refugee camps.

Nablus has been under almost continuous curfew since mid-June when Israel reoccupied most West Bank towns in response to two suicide bombings by Palestinian militants.

Many Nablus residents routinely defy the curfew, emerging from their homes when they don't see soldiers in the area. Many children attend school, and troops often ignore them.

However, there have also been clashes, mostly between children and teen-agers who throw stones at tanks and draw tear gas, rubber bullets and live rounds.

Two such clashes erupted Saturday, one in the center of Nablus and the second in the Al Ein refugee camp near the city.

Ammar Rajab, 15, was killed by a shot to the head in the refugee camp, doctors said. Witnesses said two other youths, aged 13 and 16, were wounded.

The IDF said it was checking the report.

On Friday, Mohammed Ali Zeid, a 15-year-old Palestinian was killed in a West Bank village when soldiers fired at stone throwers, and a 12-year-old was gravely wounded by army fire in Nablus.
