Jewish Extremists Claim Responsibility for Shooting two Palestinians in Hebron
A group of Jewish settlers, including members of the outlawed Kach movement, claimed on Wednesday responsibility for a drive-by shooting in Hebron that injured two Palestinians overnight, reported Israel Radio, cited by Haaretz newspaper.
One Palestinian sustained moderate wounds, while the second sustained light injuries, said the paper.
The group said in a statement that the shooting that the shooting was the “first in a series of revenge attacks against the Palestinians,” according to the radio.
Police, said Haaretz, cast some doubt on the claim, saying they were investigating several possible leads in the attack.
Initial reports said that the culprits were armed Palestinians who mistook their compatriots for Israeli settlers – Albawaba.com
