[ 03/03/2008 - 11:39 AM ]
Israeli occupation forces (IOF) soldiers on Monday shot dead a Palestinian teenager north of Ramallah during a demonstration protesting the IOF genocide in the Gaza Strip as similar marches swept the West Bank.
Local sources said that students of the Mazra Al-Gharbia village organized a protest march that headed towards a nearby settlement but were met with live bullets on the part of IOF soldiers and guards of that settlement.
The demonstrators threw stones at the soldiers and the IOF retaliated by firing bullets that hit and killed Mohammed Saleh Shreiteh, 18.
All shops in Ramallah city closed down after the incident in mourning the death of Shreiteh and the Gaza martyrs.
Similar demonstrations were organized in Al-Khalil city and its refugee camps and villages on Monday and Sunday night during which clashes were reported between the stone throwing Palestinians and the heavily armed IOF troops.
The IOF soldiers at dawn Monday raided Nablus city where three citizens were kidnapped after their homes were ransacked. The soldiers had imposed a curfew on the Hawara town south of Nablus since yesterday that was still in force today.
In Jenin, the occupation forces rounded up six citizens in two villages in the district.
In retaliation to the IOF atrocities, the PFLP armed wing the Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades fired four mortar shells at the IOF military position in Kissufim east of Gaza on Monday morning.
Three upgraded home made missiles also slammed into the coastal city of Ashkelon, in the 1948 occupied lands, north of Gaza inflicting damage on a seven-storey building. Four other missiles fell on Sderot north east of Gaza.
