Palestinian officials say the Israeli military has shot and killed two people who hurled stones at troops on an arrest raid in the northern West Bank. The Israeli military says troops came under attack early Wednesday in the Jenin refugee camp. It said assailants opened fire and hurled explosives at them and the troops returned fire. The Jenin Hospital director said two men, aged 21 and 17, were killed and two others were wounded.

Since September 2015, Palestinian attackers have killed 43 Israelis, two visiting Americans and a British tourist in stabbings, shootings and attacks using cars to ram into troops or civilians. During that time, Israeli forces have killed more than 250 Palestinians, most of them said by Israel to be attackers while others were killed in clashes.

        Mohammad was a great schemer He had brilliantly planned for his followers to capture JANNAT and all the virgins there by overwhelming numbers reaching there before they are twenty from all over the globe. His followers are falling over one another to fulfill nis dream. Soon JANNAT will be an all-muslim terrytory.with piglets playing all around.

                Government of India to act similarly. By kid-gloving stone pelters they are encouraged to continue to be stone pelters.

                  Unfortunately here in India our local Sadak ka Goondas will start ranting and raving hysterically even if one stone pelter is killed . First we must eliminate the Sadak ka Goondas and then pay attention to he stone pelters
