Israeli troops shot and killed a 19-year-old Palestinian who infiltrated an army base in northern Samaria. The army said the man ran into the base with a group of other Palestinians and they refused orders to halt. Soldiers feared that someone in the group might be strapped an explosives belt, so they opened fire. As it turns out, none of the Palestinians were armed. The base is being dismantled as part of the army’s redeployment, following the evacuation of four isolated settlements in the area.
