Israeli Troops Kill Palestinian Teen

Interesting article. First is the headline, which sounds like those eevil Joos are randomly killing kids. This impression is dispelled in the opening paragraph, which is nice, but does not seem like it was really meant.

More interesting is the final part of the story, which talks about how the Pallys are continuing to fire rockets from Gaza despite the 'truce'. Why is this story the secondary part? The fact that the Pallys think that treaties can be ignored is almost ignored by the Media! What a horrible slant that the attempted killing of villagers is almost ignored, while a kid throwing bombs is memorialized because he was killed in the act. Disgusting.

Israeli Troops Kill Palestinian Teen - "Israeli soldiers shot dead a West Bank teenager who threw Molotov cocktails at an army patrol, the army and Palestinian officials said Saturday.

The military said Israeli soldiers entered the village of Beit Umar, near Hebron, late Friday in an operation to stop fire bomb attacks on Israeli vehicles on a nearby highway. The troops shot a militant who threw two molotov cocktails at them, a military spokesman said.

Palestinians said the shots killed Mohammed Alameh, 17, one of a group of youths who fought the soldiers.

There was no indication that Alameh was a member of a militant group and no immediate sign of retaliation from Gaza Saturday morning.

The West Bank is not covered by a nine-day old truce between Israel and Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip. But on Tuesday, Islamic Jihad in Gaza fired three rockets into Israel in response to troops in the West Bank city of Nablus killing two Palestinians, one of them an Islamic Jihad commander.

Following Tuesday's rocket attacks, Israel closed its crossings into Gaza, bringing food shipments to a halt, and they have remained shut since, although Israel has said it will not let a humanitarian crisis develop in the territory of 1.4 million Palestinians.

The truce worked out in months of Egyptian mediation began June 19 and is supposed to last initially for six months. "
