IDF shoots, kills Palestinian preparing to throw Molotov cocktail at troops

The military said that protesters were throwing firebombs at the soldiers, and the man was about to throw a firebomb at the troops before he was shot.

The Ministry added that he died while hospitalized as he was shot in the chest.

"We are experiencing terrorist attacks by Arabs from the villages near the settlement, nearly daily", said Yitzhar secretariat chairman Uriah Cohen.

When the security coordinator arrived at the scene, his vehicle was pelted with stones, the spokesman said.

The border is a frequent site of clashes between Palestinians and Israeli security forces.

Meanwhile, at least four people were wounded in the Gaza Strip Friday, one of them seriously, in clashes along the border with Israel, the Health Ministry in the Palestinian enclave said.

Arab threats of retaliation are not followed by action, says PA minister, to the detriment of the Palestinians.

Israeli and Saudi Arabian officials have held a number of meetings in Cairo with the mediation of Egypt, an unnamed official with the Palestinian Authority told Emirati daily Khaleej Times on Friday.

The Americans have notified some Arab countries that Trump's decision to move the USA embassy to Jerusalem al-Quds was "part of an American effort to persuade Israel, especially the hardliners, to agree to possible concessions to the Palestinians", according to the report.

"Our failure", he said, "as Arab states, to implement our decisions throughout the past many years" was what led to America's "baseless decision" regarding the declaration of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and the recent announcement about starting the process of moving its embassy there by Israeli Independence Day in March.

Trump's decision, welcomed by Israel, has been condemned by leaders and foreign ministers across the world, who have said the city's status should be determined through negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.
