One day after murder of a Palestinian, Israeli settlers shoot up village

BEIT UMMAR, West Bank: Jewish settlers shot two Palestinian men in the occupied West Bank on Friday, critically injuring one of them, the mayor of a Palestinian village said.

Palestinians said the incident in the village of Beit Ummar near Hebron was the second time they had come under fire from settlers in 24 hours. A 19-year-old was shot dead on Thursday near Nablus, further north.

The Israeli police said they were investigating both incidents.

Fawzi Sabarna, mayor of the village, told Reuters dozens of settlers had entered his village and started shooting at houses on Friday morning, hitting two youths working on land nearby.

Palestinian medics said Fakhri Youssef, 17, was shot in the head and was on a life support machine.

The Israeli emergency sevice Zaka said settlers had been shot at by Palestinians while hiking in the area, and had returned fire. The Jerusalem Post quoted Palestinian sources as saying settlers then poured into Beit Ummar.

Violence in the West Bank has largely subsided in the past few years, but Israeli military officials have warned in private that the stalled peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians could stoke tensions and break the status quo.

On Thursday, Oday Kaddous, 19, was shot dead near the village of Iraq Burin near Nablus. His cousin Omar Kaddous accused settlers of killing him in an unprovoked attack.

Israeli media said footage from a military security camera showed an Israeli-looking man shooting in the air after Palestinians started throwing stones at him. He then fired directly at the group.

  • Is that land really worth it? Some place where some goobers wrote some fairy tales a couple thousand years back and some old dilapidated buildings stand. Totally worth it X_x

  • Odd that religious jews are exempt from military service yet they can freely carry military weapons.

  • There's more non Zionists than Zionists on the planet. And that scares the shit out of them. They'll take us all out one at a time if they have to.

    But the Palestinians should realize by now that thrown rock = dead.

    Anyway that whole place will probably be glass within 50 years and the rest of the world will just shrug and say. "Well at least we tried."

  • the tendency is to immedietly take the pales. side but there were several cases lately who were proven to be false - such as the farmer who his sheeps died and chose to acuse israel for that or the pales. boy who said to the media that he was walking on the street back from school when an israeli driver just run him over.......the vid. showed him running twords the car with stones....

    anyway the settlers claim a gruop of pales. attacked them with stones, as one of them,carrying a stone in his More..

    • 1 person shot yesterday and two more shot today after they raided a village? Whats your confusion exactly? IF palestinians had even gotten of walking distance of a settlment (even if its on his actual land) they would of been arrested on the spot if not shot dead. Yet theses settlers raid villages and shoot people dead?

    • i allways wanted to see those settlers put of there, but doesnt mean that every time there is a confrontation between the 2 sides then its the settlers who allways cuase it.

      i also had the tendency to acuse the settlers in such cases till i run in several cases which were proven as false acusations.

      the case above was not in the settelment but outside,when the settlers were walking and run into a group of palestinians.

      its likely that the pales. begun hurling stones at them and one of t More..

    • What are those settlers doing there anyways? The West Bank isn't part of Israel, now is it? It's not called "occupied territory" for nothing. And the settlers are the ones with the guns.
