After IDF patrol vehicle was pelted by rock throwers injuring one soldier, the unit commenced with the rules of engagement and opened fire, killing one of the attacker.

A Palestinian teenager throwing stones at patrolling Israeli soldiers was shot dead on Thursday next to Beit Ummar near the West Bank city of Hebron, the Israeli army said.

One soldier was lightly wounded by the stones hurled by the 15-year-old.

The incident occurred a day after a Palestinian woman approached border police with a knife at a West Bank junction and was shot dead.

Violence since October 2015 has killed 36 Israelis, two Americans, one Jordanian, an Eritrean and a Sudanese national, according to an AFP count.

At least 234 Palestinians were also killed, most while carrying out attacks at the time, according to Israeli authorities.
