Palestinian killed on West Bank

JERUSALEM, July 29 (JTA) — An Israeli soldier shot and

killed a Palestinian teen-ager who stabbed another soldier near a

Jewish settlement in the West Bank.

The Palestinian, later identified as Muadi Alawnweh, 18, had blocked an Israeli jeep Tuesday near the settlement of Elon Moreh. The soldier who was stabbed was not seriously injured. Palestinian officials later said that Israel initially sealed off the area, but later allowed the Nablus police chief to inspect the attack site.
