A Palestinian who threw explosives at Israeli troops died Thursday after they opened fire at him during a protest against a settlement outpost on the West Bank.
The Israeli military said Wednesday that a soldier stationed near the wildcat outpost saw a group of Palestinians approaching, and that one "hurled a suspicious object at him, which exploded adjacent to the soldier." The army said that the soldier fired in the air, then shot the Palestinian who threw the object.
The Palestinian Health Ministry said Ahmad Shamsa, 15, died of a gunshot wound sustained a day earlier and became the fourth demonstrator to be killed since the outpost was established last month.
