An 11-year-old Arab boy has allegedly been killed in violent Arab rioting Sunday morning in Al Fawwar, on the outskirts of Hebron.
Gaza-based Hamas agitators and their sympathizers in Judea and Samaria have been urging Palestinian Arabs and those with Israeli citizenship to increase participation in violent incidents as much as possible in order to expand a budding third intifada.
On Sunday morning, the IDF soldiers were trying to contain the violence around Hebron, which included Arabs in the mob hurling bricks and other items at the Israeli soldiers.
Palestinian Authority sources claimed the child was killed by Israeli gunfire. An IDF spokesperson told TheJewishPress.com the IDF is “checking the report.”
