Jerusalem: The Israeli military say
soldiers shot and killed a Palestinian who tried to throw
explosives at a West Bank checkpoint.
A military spokesman said the Palestinian arrived at
the checkpoint today and charged at the soldiers while
wielding a pipe bomb and yelling "Allah Akbar “or” God is
Great," in Arabic.
The military says soldiers ordered the Palestinian to
stop, then opened fire after he ignored them.
Another Palestinian was shot at the same checkpoint a
week ago after charging the position with a glass bottle.
The military says soldiers initially thought he was
carrying a bomb and is investigating the case.
