Update: Al Jazeera reports the Palestinian person killed by the Israeli settler yesterday (video below) was teenager Fadel al-Kawasmeh, 18. Also, violent settlers went on a rampage last night attacking Palestinian homes:
18-year-old Fadel al-Kawasmeh was killed by a settler on Saturday afternoon. Palestinians dispute the accusation that the teen had tried to stab the settler.
“The situation is very tense after Kawasmeh was assassinated by the settler,” Amro said. “Hundreds of settlers attacked Palestinian homes near the Kiryat Arba settlement overnight. People defended their homes with rocks and molotov cocktails.
“People are very scared here. Parents aren’t sending their kids to school and a lot of people aren’t going to work,” he added. “The settlers are even more violent than the soldiers.”
An Israeli civilian shot and killed a Palestinian teen in Hebron today. The killer claimed the Palestinian intended to harm him. The aftermath of the murder was released on video by Youth Against Settlements. The killer, all in white, shows no sign of being attacked.
This video is disturbing. Questions have been raised over an exchange between two of the soldiers who appear to be passing something from one to another at 13 seconds in the video.
What’s he passing to the soldier?

The soldier appears to lean over a body (corpse) lying on the ground:
Dead men tell no tales. They can’t tell the truth, provide testimony or speak for themselves. Are we watching a set up?
