Israeli troops killed a mentally ill Palestinian, mistaking him for a terrorist. The man was shot dead in Jenin on Tuesday as troops scoured the West Bank city for arms caches. According to Israeli security sources, the Palestinian approached soldiers despite their repeated requests that he halt, forcing them to open fire. Investigations determined that he was not armed and had a history of mental illness.
