Israeli troops in the West Bank village of Rajoub shot dead a Palestinian mother and her armed son overnight in what appeared to be a mixup sparked by a feud between villagers, residents said. They said that in the small hours of Sunday morning soldiers fired at a house on the outskirts of the village, where 20-year-old Fawzi Dwekat was standing guard with a rifle in the wake of arson attacks on the family's cars. The youth and his 50-year-old mother Nawal were killed by shots from soldiers who apparently believed they had come across a terrorist hideout, neighbors said. The army had no immediate information on any incident in Rajoub.
