RAMALLAH, WEST BANK (AP) - Palestinian officials say a Palestinian teen was killed by Israeli army fire near a Jewish settlement in the West Bank.
The youth was killed late Friday near the Beit El settlement.
The Israeli military says soldiers guarding the settlement spotted a group of Palestinians who threw firebombs toward the gate of Beit El.
The military says troops fired warning shots and then toward the group. Palestinian security officials said Saturday that a 16-year-old was killed and a 19-year-old was wounded in the leg.
Also Saturday, the Gaza-Egypt border opened to allow Gazans seeking medical treatment to leave the blockaded territory. Gaza’s borders have been virtually sealed since the Islamic militant Hamas seized control two years ago.
