The human rights organization B'Tselem has appealed to Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz and the chief IDF prosecutor demanding an inquiry into the killing of four Palestinian fugitives in Bethlehem some two weeks ago, it was reported Thursday morning. Among the Palestinians gunned down in the IDF operation was Mahmoud Shehada, who was allegedly among the plotters of the Mercaz Harav shooting attack. B'Tselem claimed that the IDF acted contrary to High Court orders, which state that troops must not kill Palestinian terror suspects if they can be arrested and brought to justice.
