Israeli army kills Palestinian suspected of West Bank attack


He said Ahmad Manasra was in the auto behind and got out of his vehicle to help the wounded man, who was shot in the abdomen.

NABLUS, Palestinian Territories: Two Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces in clashes near a flashpoint religious site in the occupied West Bank overnight Wednesday, the Palestinian Health Ministry said. As Manasra was returning to his auto, the Israeli soldiers shot and killed him, he said.

Jordan condemned the court ruling, with its Foreign Ministry saying that Israel would bear "full responsibility for the unsafe consequences" of the decision.

Tensions are high in the West Bank over ongoing Israeli aggression at the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in the Old City of Jerusalem.

The Palestinian health ministry said Ahmed Manasara, 26, was shot dead near a checkpoint close to Bethlehem, without providing further details.

Hours later, the Israeli military said a soldier stationed at a military post near Bethlehem identified rocks being thrown at Israeli vehicles and in response fired his weapon.

On Tuesday night, the Israeli army killed three Palestinians in two separate shooting incidents. An Israeli army spokeswoman said the report was being looked into. "I don't know why they shot him". The murder of Ahmad Manasra occurred a day after Israeli forces shot three other Palestinians and wounded more than 10 in the West Bank.
