Israeli army probes shooting death of West Bank Palestinian

JERUSALEM -- The Israeli military says it's investigating the fatal shooting of a Palestinian man by an Israeli civilian earlier this month near the West Bank city of Nablus.

 

The inquiry comes the same day as Sunday's announcement by Israeli rights group B'Tselem saying it found inconsistencies in the initial report that the Palestinian man was armed with a knife.

 

On April 3, the Israeli driver shot Mohammed Abdel Fattah, 23, who he said tried to stab him after hurling a stone at his car.
