  • Israeli, Palestinian Killed in Two Violent Incidents

The Palestinians, however, said that 47-year-old Mahmoud Odeh was shot while working on his land in the northern West Bank village.

In October, a seven-year-old Palestinian girl was hospitalised after settlers threw stones at her family's auto in the occupied city. A video from the scene showed that their exit was blocked by a group of Palestinians.

The man who opened fire told Ynet that "dozens of Palestinians threw rocks and stones at us, we were in mortal danger and we tried to protect the children".

A Palestinian protester hurls back a tear gas canister fired by Israeli troops during clashes in the West Bank village of Qusrah near Nablus, November 30, 2017.

A spokesperson for the Yitzhar settlement, Avraham Binyamin, said the hike was part of a "bar mitzvah trip for one of the children", though it is not clear if they coordinated the trip with the authorities, as is generally required in the West Bank. They were later rescued by Israeli security forces. Therefore, one out of two armed guards, who escorted them, used his handgun to disperse the mob, but a bullet accidentally hit the Palestinian farmer and killed him.

Israeli, Palestinian Killed in Two Violent Incidents

"The critical situation resulting from the air, land and sea blockade presupposes the nearly total isolation and great deprivation of the 2 million Palestinian civilians living in the area", the Cuban ambassador said.

The child, who gave an on-camera statement that was released by the Samaria Regional Council, said that a second group of Palestinians arrived at the entrance of the cave and helped drive back the initial group that was blocking their exit, until the army arrived.

An Israeli and a Palestinian were killed on Thursday in two separate incidents in Israel and the occupied West Bank, officials said.

Daghlas said the settlers ordered him to move and when he refused, one of them shot him in the chest.
