Two Israeli teenagers were killed and three others wounded in a drive-by shooting near Hebron. The attack occurred last Friday afternoon as the group was waiting to hitchhike outside Beit Haggai in the southern Hebron Hills. One 17-year-old youth was killed outright, and another died of his wounds Sunday. The Al-Aksa Brigade claimed responsibility for the attack.
