A 17-year-old Palestinian boy was shot and killed as he and two others hurled firebombs at the Jewish town of Beit El in Samaria on Monday night. The two other attackers were wounded, but managed to escape.
The boy who was killed in the attack was the son of a Palestinian terrorist aligned with Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah movement who was killed during an attack on Israelis nine years ago at the start of the so-called "Oslo War."
Israel National News noted that despite mainstream media reports suggesting the area is more or less quiet, the Jewish residents of Beit El come under regular attack from neighboring Arabs wielding stones and makeshift firebombs.
In other violence, a 23-year-old Palestinian man stabbed an older Jewish man to death at a guest house in Jerusalem on Sunday evening. The Arab man worked at the guest house, where the Jewish man was staying.
The two reportedly had argued about something throughout the day. As nightfall approached and the argument intensified, the Arab man got a knife and stabbed the Jewish man repeatedly in the back, chest and abdomen.
The attacker was captured by Israeli police as he attempted to flee to Palestinian Authority-controlled areas north of Jerusalem.
