Israeli soldiers have killed a Palestinian teenager during clashes in the West Bank, where Israel is carrying out a weeklong military operation following the disappearance of three Israeli teenagers.
 
Palestinian officials say 15-year-old Mohammed Dudin died early Friday in the village of Dura near the divided city of Hebron after being shot in the chest.
 
Israeli officials say soldiers conducting overnight arrest raids used live ammunition on a group of Palestinians who threw rocks and Molotov cocktails at the troops.
 
Three other Palestinians were seriously injured when soldiers opened fire during a raid on the Qalandiya refugee camp, where Israeli officials say youths were also throwing stones.
 
Over 300 Palestinians have been arrested as Israeli troops have fanned out across the West Bank this week, searching over a thousand homes. Two Palestinians have been killed.
 
The raid follows last week's disappearance of three Israeli boys from a West Bank settlement. Israel says they were kidnapped by Hamas, but has given no proof.
 
The Islamist militant group has not claimed responsibility for the alleged kidnapping, but its officials have said that such attacks are justified.
 
Israeli officials have acknowledged that the military campaign is aimed not only at finding the missing teens, but is also trying to deal a blow to Hamas, which does not recognize the state of Israel.
 
In the Gaza Strip, where Hamas is in control, rockets continued to fly into Israel from militant hideouts. Israel responded late Thursday with air strikes. No injuries were reported either in the rocket attacks or airstrikes.
 
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has condemned the alleged kidnapping, saying the boys are "human beings just like us who must be returned to their families." He has also criticized the Israeli operation, saying it amounts to collective punishment.

Israel may have recently sacrificed three Jewish teens, two Israeli and one American. Israel did sacrifice many American, but not Israeli, Jews with Massad's false flag 9-11 New York City massacre. Both crimes were intended to justify the Jew's violence and expansion, and lead to control of America, then racist world domination.

The Media should stop those lies, The Palestinians don't have rocks, they have Iranian made rockets fired into Israel every single day. A 15 Years old teenager was killed, was it by Israel or the so called Palestinians? and how do you know it was Israel? That kid died in cross fired. Where are the Jewish children? give Israel their children, then we wont have no problem. The so called Palestinians came and occupied Israeli land. Israel has always been there, even before 1947 May 15. The Koran has proved that Israel was there,all along in the Koran, there are scripture that talk about the children of Israel, it is not talking about 1967 children of Israel, cuz obviously Israel was there before 1967. There are historical evidence to proved that Israel was always there., There are Biblical evidence to proved that Israel was always there. So that is a cheap popaganda to say Israel occupied Arab Israel. Read the Koran, every where you read, you will read about the children of Israel my friend. Do your own study, don't learned from other people mouth. God Bless Israel

How many more innocent civilians will the brutal Israeli army be allowed to kill before the international community has had a belly full of this violent oppression of a people whose land has now been occupied since 1967?

When will the world realise that this conflict in which an entire indigenous people has been displaced and dispossessed by a foreign force will inevitably produce the spark that will result in a nuclear conflict that will herald WW3? What does the world think is the rationale for Israel's position as the only secret nuclear weapons state with an undeclared arsenal of WMD sufficient now to wipe out the entire Middle East?

AIPAC's control of Congress, rampant Jewish news control, and Massad's false flag 9-11 New York City massacre made it happen. Israel successfully instigated all our Mideast wars and benefited from all. None were in American interests, yet we did the dying and suffered the Great Recession. With the world's fourth most powerful military, the Jewish state continues to cruelly and illegally expand its borders. With covert accomplishments plus land and submarine launched ICBMs, all Goya world wide will become as Palestinians.
