Israeli Shot Dead by Palestinians in Ramallah Restaurant
An Israeli man in his 60s was reportedly shot to death by Palestinians in a restaurant near Ramallah, in the northern West Bank, on Thursday, Israel Radio said.
It said that the Israeli, whose identity was not immediately known, went to eat with his Arab friends in a restaurant at Naalin, near Ramallah.
The unidentified Palestinians suddenly entered the restaurant and shot him in the head, it added.
AFP's latest death tally for the Palestinian uprising against 34 years of Israeli military occupation comes out to 13 Arab Israelis, 578 Palestinians, and 155 Israelis, putting the ratio of casualties at around four Palestinians killed for every Israeli loss.
Amnesty International reported early this year that almost 100 Palestinian children had been killed by Israeli soldiers, nearly all in situations where the occupation troops were under no immediate threat – Albawaba.com
