JNS.org – Three Israelis were lightly wounded overnight Tuesday when terrorists hurled rocks and firebombs at vehicles on Route 443, a main highway linking Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. While responding with gunfire at the suspected perpetrators of the attack, Israel Defense Forces (IDF) troops mistakenly killed a Palestinian bystander. At least one other Palestinian was wounded.

“After an initial inquiry, it appears that uninvolved bystanders were mistakenly hit during the pursuit,” an IDF spokesperson said.

The mistakenly killed Palestinian was identified as 15-year-old Mahmoud Badran.

    They threw rocks and boulders and greased the road. You make it sound like kids play. the Israelis were slightly injured and one Palestinian who was a bystander was killed. By accident. Well, I don’t call it an accident. If the Palestinians had NOT thrown rocks, the IDF would not have gone after them, so they brought this “tragedy” on themselves. Put the blame where it belongs. They’ll make a martyr out of him and celebrate. I doubt he was without sin or at some future date would have been throwing rocks. Call this “crime prevention” !
