Palestinian rioters began throwing stones at  Col. Israel Shomer’s vehicle and in response, after firing warning shots he opened fire and killed one of them. The victim was identified as a seventeen-year-old named Muhammad al-Casba.

The incident took place near the West Bank village of Al-Ram which is north-east of Jerusalem, at a time of heightened security in the West Bank following a spate of terrorist attacks against Israeli targets. The commander was on his way to the Kalandiya checkpoint in between Jerusalem and Ramallah when his vehicle was attacked.

There were no injuries among the IDF personnel but a photo of the scene showed an IDF vehicle with a smashed windshield.

“The commander reacted exactly as expected given that the incident presented an immediate risk to life,” an IDF source said on Friday.

The source described the attack on the commander’s vehicle as an ambush that was planned.

Large forces were sent to the area following the shooting as the IDF assessed that disturbances to public order would come in its wake.
