A 19-year-old Palestinian Authority army cadet was killed on Monday during a riot southwest of Hevron, where the IDF was patrolling the village of Dura, a hotbed of Hamas terrorists.
Arabs threw rocks at the army vehicles, and the cadet, Muataz Idris Shrawana, was killed either by army gunfire or was run over by a vehicle when he tried to climb on an IDF jeep.
He was training at the American-funded Palestinian Authority Military Academy in Jericho, and his intentions as a PA soldier were apparent by his participating in the riot.
