RAMALLAH, West Bank - A Palestinian teenager was killed on Monday in a clash with Israeli soldiers near the West Bank town of Bethlehem, a Palestinian hospital source said.

Violence in the West Bank and east Jerusalem has intensified in the past few weeks and the teenager's reported death was the latest in a series of incidents that has raised fears of wider escalation.

A Bethlehem hospital said a 13-year-old boy identified as Abdel-Rahman Abeidallah of the nearby al-Aidah refugee camp died of a bullet wound to the heart.

The IDF had no initial information and a spokeswoman said she was checking for details.

Recent bloodshed has included a drive-by shooting that killed an Israeli couple in the West Bank on Thursday, a stabbing attack that killed two Israelis in east Jerusalem on Saturday and an arson attack that killed a Palestinian toddler and his parents in July.

Other incidents involving Palestinian stone-throwers and Israeli security forces continued without respite on Monday.

On Sunday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met security chiefs to discuss more action to tackle the rising violence in east Jerusalem and the West Bank.



Netanyahu said on Sunday that the new measures would include speeding up the razing of homes of Palestinian attackers and banning those who incite violence from Jerusalem's Old City.
