Israel soldiers killed a 15-year-old boy who was attempting to damage the security fence south of Hebron Wednesday and refused to heed soldier’warnings to halt.

Palestinian Authority media came up with a new idea for the youth’s approaching the security fence. In Gaza, the suspects usually are described by Arab media as playing soccer or looking for scrap metal, but the teenager south of Hebron was said to simply have been looking for a plant that is popular among Arabs.

The youth, identified as Yousef Nayif abu Akar, was picking plants, which is forbidden because it is a “protected plant” but not an offense that interests Israeli soldiers, who patrol the security fence to make sure that there is no damage that would render it inoperative and endanger the lives of Jews in nearby communities.

“Three suspects sabotaged the security fence in Deir al-Asal Atachta, and soldiers at the scene called them to distance themselves and fired warning shots in the air,” an Israeli army spokeswoman said.

The soldiers carried out standard operating procedure, calling for the suspects to halt and then shooting at the legs after they ignored orders.

The other two suspects were arrested.

  1. we must be very careful, it seems to be a trick to start a war with Israel again . So strange that after Iran sending missile to support Gaza , shortly Syria attacks the North of Israel and after that the arabs in West bank sending their kids to become “martyrs” (like the kid has any idea what he is doing) to make Israel look bad and give to the arabs an excuse to continue attacking…

  2. Karen Bryant says:

    Children living under the pla are used as weapons. 15 isn’t a child.

  3. It is a sad sad time when forced to kill young ones.

  4. one less killer….

  5. Josh Barrack says:

    Try to cross the Russian or Chinese borders from places like Georgia or Pakistan. Better yet, try North Korea or Iran. He was told to stop, didn’t, and paid the price. Darwinism in action. What do you think would happen if I tried to cross into Lebanon?

  6. This would kill two birds with one stone:

  7. Run Guo says:

    Sad thing is that this boy was indoctrinate since childhood, manipulated by those cowards to do dirty job, and died instead of them. To prevent same thing happen again? Kill all those cowards behind such boy.

  8. Run Guo says:

    you destroy my fence, I level your building, then PA govt and its people will make sure no one from among them touches the fence.
