A United Nations agency that monitors incidents said earlier this year that an increase in settler violence had occurred alongside a major rise in Palestinian attacks against Israelis, the vast majority of which involved stone-throwing at vehicles. In an unrelated incident earlier, a Jewish West Bank settler fatally shot a 47-year-old Palestinian villager in a clash that occurred under disputed circumstances.

Israel's military said the settler had opened fired in self-defence after Palestinians threw rocks at a group of hiking settlers and students.

According to the IDF, the settlers were on a hike near the village of Qusra, south of Nablus, when a group of Palestinian residents started throwing rocks at them.

A day after two Israeli settlers shot and killed a Palestinian who attacked a group of teens during a hiking trip, the Israel Police on Friday questioned them under caution for suspected negligent homicide. They were later rescued by Israeli security forces. Medics also treated the wounded.

The border violence comes a month after Israel detonated a tunnel leading from Gaza into its territory, killing 12 people, among them militants from the Iranian-backed Palestinian Islamic Jihad group and Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip.

Christmas tree could have of bugs in it, but not thousands
Nicer Tree, Cheaper Price Owner Jay Wisshack says, "If you like a really nice selection, probably earlier would be better". The National Christmas Tree Association says there should be enough trees for everyone who wants one to get one.

The military would not say where the shooter was, saying only that the incident was being investigated.

Ghassan Douglas, a Palestinian Authority official who deals with the settlements, said that the Palestinian was shot in the chest and later succumbed to his wounds in a Nablus hospital.

An Israeli occupation army and settler council in the West Bank claimed that the Israeli settlers were little boys, and were on vacation.

Last year, former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon warned that if Israel maintained its illegal West Bank settlements - and no political solution to the conflict was found - the prospect of a two-state-solution would die.
