Israeli soldiers kill Palestinian, 19

2013-07-02 14:01

Ramallah - Israeli soldiers shot dead a Palestinian during a confrontation in the occupied West Bank on Tuesday, Palestinian officials said.

An Israeli military spokesperson said Palestinians threw rocks at soldiers who were on routine duties in the Dura village, near the city of Hebron.

"They then began climbing a military vehicle. The security forces warned the suspects and used riot dispersal means. Finally, with no other option, they responded with fire at one of the suspects and the incident is currently being investigated," she said.

Palestinian hospital officials said one Palestinian died of gunshot wounds. Hebron governor Kamel Hamid identified him as Moataz Sharawneh, aged 19.

"Sharawneh was killed though he did nothing wrong. We hold the occupation authorities responsible for what has happened and what might happen as a result," Hamid told Palestinian radio.

Violence in the West Bank has risen since the beginning of 2013. Israeli forces have killed 10 Palestinians there this year, most of them in clashes, compared with three killed in the same period in 2012, according to The United Nations Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

Some officials have said a wider flare-up could ensue if a US bid to revive peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians fails.

    Warning, still climb on military vehicles. the same nation that loves their suicide bombs. And still the governor said he did nothing wrong. Geez, these people will milk anything to look like the victim.

      Larry - 2013-07-04 22:25

      The boy did nothing wrong, and you Na-aem are an idiot. There is no reasoning with you.

    Well they threw rocks at the vehicle, then climed on the vehicle and warned and they did not listen. Then the soldiers used riot dispersal methods and still did not listen. They must have obviously threatened the soldiers. The Palistinians cause all the trouble and then as soon as one of them get shot they then they are the victims. Sort out those dam terrorists in Palistine and maybe ppl will start helping you.

      Na-aem Williams - 2013-07-02 15:14

      The jews do not own palestine.You clearly an idiot.

      Tommy Jones - 2013-07-02 15:19

      They do own the military vehicles though. In other words, they do have a right to protect their property and personnel.

      Gary Landman - 2013-07-02 15:23

      Na-aem, you are correct, I will give you that. You are 100% right... the Jews do no own Palestine.. The Israeli's own Israel, Hebrew and non-Hebrew Israeli's both. I am going to use your groups statement now...There is no such thing as Palestine. Its a myth.. there let me hear some idiot arguments come up now.

      Linton Read - 2013-07-02 15:29

      Naeem. You are the only uneducated idiot here. How can you say the Jews don't own Palestine, when it doesn't even exist? Show us the Palestinian borders?

      Darryl Maze - 2013-07-02 15:58

      Na-aem! The only dumb idiot here is you. There is no Palenstine. Please prove to us and show us the border lines.

      @Darryl... There were no countries only kingdoms.... This is the wrong era to be stealing land.... It don't fly anymore

      Avremel Niselow - 2013-07-03 11:49

  • Na-aem Williams - 2013-07-02 15:22

    @Averal i told you before invite me on facebook ,stop being a coward.

      Avremel Niselow - 2013-07-02 15:25

      I told you before, answer the questions I posed on the other thread. I prefer to debate on a public forum where everyone can laugh at you.

      Linton Read - 2013-07-02 16:01

      Looks like comedy hour is over. Naeem has left the building. Lol.

      Jerzy Bondov - 2013-07-02 16:25

      Avremeal, what are you afraid of? Im only laughing at you being being a coward.

      Avremel Niselow - 2013-07-02 16:28

      Naaem seems to be the coward as he repeatedly runs away from any debate on this site.

      Avremel Niselow - 2013-07-02 16:29

      Anyway I don't want aggro whining trash like him on my friendlist.

  • Mike Cambier - 2013-07-02 17:29

    well what did he expect ? you cant just climb on a military vehicle and not expect something to happen to you , the fact that he was killed obviously means that he was putting the IDF member's at risk , you cant climb into the lions den and not expect something to happen to you , and then blame the lions .

  • Muaaz Patel - 2013-07-02 17:51

    I'm sure that's how it went down...

    Anti Israel comments always get deleted. Where is freedom of speech - news24 ?

  • Dayaan Deskay - 2013-07-02 22:50

    It's amazing how many Zionist apologist cum lobbyist have quoted on this article but none of them quoted on this article: . Is it because they do not see Zionists as terrorists because in their eyes only Palestinians, Arabs, Muslims are terrorists. God forbid here is an article discussing how Zionists are terrorizing peaceable people and they all shy away from quoting on it since it is an inconvenient truth. ZIONISTS ARE ALSO TERRORISTS.

      James Vandermerwe - 2013-07-03 07:50

      Martin - just part of the propoganda machine - Palistine and their supporters will always twist the truth, and people will eat it up without checking the facts.

      Avremel Niselow - 2013-07-03 09:14

      Dayaan, when you comment on the dozen articles on Muslim terror each day then you can complain. Until then you just come off as a whiny little girl, in other words like the average Islamist supporter.

      Dayaan Deskay - 2013-07-03 21:11

      Martin you are the bigot since you only comment on non Zionist terrorists and James the propaganda that's being disseminated is that all Palestinians, Arabs, Muslims are terrorists and forgetting that amongst Zionists their are also terrorists and Avremel you are the whiny girl that goes around bullying woman and children. There has never been a word such as Islamist that's a word created by the Zionist propaganda machine I AM NOT AN EXTREMIST if you have taken the time to read any of my posts you would know that i condemn extremism from all sides be it from fellow Muslims or from Zionists or from whatever person. But of course the voice of the moderate are ignored because in the eyes of the Zionist Propaganda machine their is no moderates, and you and your ilk do not give the space for moderates to speak out since you only have a one track mind KILL KILL and KILL

      Avremel Niselow - 2013-07-04 07:49

      Do you support Hamas? A simple yes or no answer will suffice. The definition of Islamist is simple: a person who wishes to spread Islam by any means and wants to impose sharia law. If you say that it is a made up word then you are implying that all Muslims feel that way.

      Avremel Niselow - 2013-07-04 07:50

      Dayaan tell me, why are there only mass Muslim protests when someone fights against the extremists? Surely they should be happy?

      Avremel Niselow - 2013-07-04 07:52

      It's always funny when a Muslim says others kill, you kill each other at a rate of hundreds a day, generally because you pray differently.
