Palestinian killed in village near Ramallah
Israeli soldiers opened fire and killed a Palestinian in a village near Ramallah early Thursday, according to Voice of Palestine radio station, reported dpa.
The station said soldiers opened fire on Palestinians in the village of Kufr Malik, west of Ramallah, during a pre-dawn raid, killing one and injuring another.
This is the third Palestinian Israeli soldiers have killed in the Ramallah area in the last 24 hours.
A 22-year-old Palestinian from Jalazoun refugee camp, north of Ramallah, died late Wednesday night of wounds sustained when soldiers stationed at nearby Beit El military camp opened fire on stone- throwing Palestinians after the funeral of a 17-year-old Jalazoun resident killed the night before in similar circumstances.
Hospital sources said the 22-year-old was shot in the chest.
