Forças israelenses matam palestino em operação na Cisjordânia, diz testemunha

RAMALLAH, Cisjordânia (Reuters) - Forças de segurança israelenses mataram um palestino a tiros durante uma operação para prisão na Cisjordânia ocupada, nesta quarta-feira, quando se iniciaram confrontos com moradores, de acordo com fontes palestinas.
Uma testemunha palestina disse à Reuters que as forças israelenses entraram no vilarejo de Bruqin para realizar prisões e moradores apedrejaram as tropas. A testemunha não quis dar seu nome por medo de ser presa.
Uma porta-voz do Exército israelense disse que soldados e a polícia paramilitar de fronteira realizaram uma operação conjunta, mas não deu mais detalhes sobre as circunstâncias da troca de tiros e disse que o Exército estava investigando o incidente.
Um funcionários de um hospital palestino disse que Mohammed Alawneh, de 19 anos, foi baleado no peito e levado ao hospital, onde morreu por conta dos ferimentos. A testemunha disse que Alawneh pegou uma pedra para jogar em um policial e então foi baleado.
Tropas israelenses entram territórios controlados pelos palestinos frequentemente para deter pessoas suspeitas por Israel de envolvimento com atividades militantes. Os palestinos condenam esta prática como uma intromissão na autonomia limitada que possuem em partes da Cisjordânia.
Os palestinos querem estabelecer um Estado em Jerusalém Oriental, Cisjordânia e Faixa de Gaza, territórios capturados por Israel na guerra do Oriente Médio de 1967. Negociações de paz intermediadas pelos Estados Unidos entre os dois lados foram rompidas no ano passado.

Israeli forces kill Palestinian in West Bank arrest raid - witness

RAMALLAH, West Bank (Reuters) - Israeli security forces on an arrest raid in the occupied West Bank shot and killed a Palestinian on Wednesday when clashes broke out with residents, Palestinian sources said.
A Palestinian witness told Reuters Israeli forces entered the village to carry out arrests in the village of Bruqin and that residents threw stones at the Israeli troops.
The witness did not want to give his name for fear of arrest.
A spokeswoman for the Israeli military described the stone-throwing as “a violent riot” and said troops had called on the crowd to stop hurling rocks before they opened fire at the main culprit.
She confirmed that the troops had been carrying out arrests along with the paramilitary border police.
A Palestinian hospital official said Mohammed Alawneh, 19, was shot in his chest and taken to hospital where he died of his wounds. The witness said Alawneh picked up a stone to throw at a policeman and was then shot.
Israeli troops enter Palestinian-controlled territory frequently to detain people suspected by Israel of militant activity. The Palestinians condemn this practice as an encroachment on the limited self-rule they hold in parts of the West Bank.
The Palestinians want to establish a state in East Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza Strip, territories Israel captured in the 1967 Middle East war. U.S.-brokered peace talks between the sides broke down last year.
