Israeli soldiers kill a Palestinian man in West Bank, saying he threw explosives

JERUSALEM (AP) — Palestinian health officials say Israeli soldiers have shot and killed a Palestinian man in the West Bank. The Israeli military said that soldiers late Friday shot at two Palestinians who hurled Molotov cocktails at an army post near the West Bank city of Ramallah. The incident was the latest in a spiral of violence that has gripped the occupied territory for more than a year and a half. Residents of Ramallah called for a general strike Saturday to pay tribute to the slain Palestinian. The Israeli military has mounted near-nightly raids into Palestinian towns. Militancy has surged among young Palestinians who have lost hope in their leadership and in the prospect of a political resolution to the decades-old conflict.
