Palestine slams United States ambassador to Israel for 'complicating road towards peace'

Ali Amr Nimr Qeeno was shot dead by the Israeli troops in the village of Burin near the city Nablus as they were sweeping the area for suspects in the murder of Rabbi Raziel Shevach, killed last week in the West Bank outpost of Havat Gilad.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said "violent riots" involving rock-throwing youth erupted at two locations along the Gaza border, and some 50 Palestinians were involved.

Amir Abd al-Hamid Abu Musaed, 16, was killed from a gunshot to the chest during clashes Friday alongside the Gaza Strip's border with Israel, the Palestinian Ma'an news agency reported.

Forty-six Palestinians sustained light and moderate wounds by Israeli army gunfire on Friday during clashes in the West Bank and Gaza, the Palestinian health ministry said.

Ankara has strongly condemned the Israeli announcement about the construction of more than 1,100 homes in West Bank settlements.
