Palestinian stabs U.S.-Israeli citizen to death at West Bank mall

Palestinian stabs U.S.-Israeli citizen to death at West Bank mall

At least three Palestinians, including a child, were killed Friday by the Israeli army near the Gaza-Israel buffer zone.

Israel's military said their evidence shows the 11-year-old was hit by a rock thrown by protesters. The Israeli army "responded with riot dispersal means and operated in accordance with the standard operating procedures", said the IDF.

The palestinian enclave has been the scene of protests since march 30, along the fence to ask for the lifting of the israeli blockade and for the right of return of Palestinians who were expelled or fled their lands in the creation of Israel in 1948.

Israeli aircrafts targeted an observation point affiliated with the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of resistance movement Hamas, which has governed the Gaza Strip since 2007.

Sources also reported that Israeli forces immediately opened fire and shot the Palestinian youth.

An IDF aircraft and tank struck two posts that belong to Hamas along the Gaza Strip in response to the "riots" taking place along the Israel-Gaza border fence, during which grenades and explosive devices were hurled at IDF troops, according to a statement issued by the IDF on Friday evening.

Erekat, who also serves as the chief Palestinian negotiator, said that the USA has already accepted Israel's position on the main issues of the conflict, including Jerusalem as Israel's capital, the status of West Bank settlements and the question of Palestinian refugees.

A Queens-born Israel advocate and well-known social-media personality was fatally stabbed by a Palestinian in the West Bank on Sunday, according to reports. Fuld, a father of four, lived in the settlement of Efrat, in the Etzion area.

Israeli police said the Palestinian who stabbed him in the back at a shopping mall in the Etzion bloc of Jewish settlements south of Jerusalem was shot and wounded by one of several armed civilians - including a bleeding Fuld - who gave chase.

During last year's march by right-wing Israelis through East Jerusalem's Old City to mark 50 years since Israel seized control of it in the Six-Day War, Fuld said it was a "miraculous day" for Jews.
