Israeli troops killed the third Palestinian firebomber in three days.

For the third day in a row, Israeli forces in the West Bank shot and killed a Palestinian on Thursday as he prepared to hurl a Molotov cocktail at them. The incident took place near the Palestinian village of Kufr Malik, according to Ha’aretz.

Wednesday’s deadly incident took place near Ramallah, when a Palestinian mob attacked an IDF position.

On Tuesday, IDF troops shot a Palestinian teenager near the Jewish settlement of Beit El. The troops found ten other Molotov cocktails next to the teen’s body. Palestinian sources told Ynet the youths were throwing rocks, not Molotov cocktails.
