TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- Israeli military forces killed a Palestinian man near Ramallah late Monday, in the second deadly shooting in a day in the occupied West Bank, reports said.

Hebrew-language daily Maariv reported that Israeli forces opened fire at Palestinians who threw stones at cars on Route 60, near the illegal settlement outpost of Givat Assaf.

The victim was identified as Saji Darwish, 18, from Beitin village.

He was taken to Ramallah hospital after Israeli forces detained his body for an hour.

Another young man was injured, medics said.

An Israeli military spokeswoman confirmed the incident, saying that "a Palestinian hurled rocks at an Israeli vehicle and bus near Beit El."

"The soldiers at the scene responded by opening fire at the suspect," the spokeswoman said.

"The Palestinian was injured and later died as a result of his wounds. The military police court has opened an investigation regarding this incident."

Earlier, Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian man at the Allenby Bridge crossing with Jordan, Israel's army and witnesses said.

Army commander Yaron Beit On, speaking in a conference call with reporters later in the day, said that after a man attempted to snatch an Israeli soldier's gun, another soldier shot him in the leg.

The man then managed to grab a metal bar from one of the Israeli troops, Beit On said. When he tried to use it as a weapon, a soldier shot and killed him.

He said that the incident occurred at around 9:30 a.m., and that the man was carrying two suitcases with him.

The victim was identified as Raed Alaa Addin Zieter, 38, from Nablus.

A Jordanian security official told AFP that Zeiter worked as a judge in Amman and had left for the West Bank early on Monday.

Jordan's justice ministry confirmed the information, saying he worked at a magistrates court in the capital.

Palestinian security officials said he was originally from the northern West Bank city of Nablus, but had left the territories in 2011 and not returned.

The Palestinian Authority strongly condemned the shooting and demanded an international investigation.

"The Palestinian government vigorously condemns the shooting at close range of Judge Raed Zeiter ... while he was coming in from Jordan," it said.

Correction: The man killed near Ramallah was originally identified in this report as Fadi Sayel Darwish. In fact, the man's name is Saji Darwish.

'...Army commander Yaron Beit On, speaking in a conference call with reporters later in the day, said that after a man attempted to snatch an Israeli soldier's gun, another soldier shot him in the leg. The man then managed to grab a metal bar from one of the Israeli troops, Beit On said. When he tried to use it as a weapon, a soldier shot and killed him...' Obviously, the Israelis need to send this one back to the script department.

So, if we are to believe the IDF version of events, this poor man at Allenby Bridge, although carrying two suitcases and having been shot in the leg, still managed to grab a metal bar from a soldier and tried to use that as a weapon...and was then shot dead.

2014 is shaping up as a bumper year. It's only March and already the kill number must be in double digits. And a judge. A violent, metal bar-grabbing Jordanian magistrate. Not just dreck. G-d knows what it'll be by December.

We can't even call Israelis barbarism WAR crimes because there is no war. Israeli soldiers are randomly murdering Palestinians, where is the international community where is the worlds stance against this criminal holocaust upon the Palestinian people. Every Israeli soldier who has killed a innocent Palestinian may he and his seed pay for his crimes and they will, time and the world will be witness!

So the carnage continues... Unarmed civilians slaughtered by heavily armed solders... And no matter the spin, and excuses presented, the fact remains.. They were unarmed people.. Going about their business.. What will these brave solders do, when the people have finally had enough... And the solders face off with an armed population... Pray it dosn't get that far..

Rocks thrown at moving vehicles can be lethal. An Israeli father and his baby were killed last year by a rock in his windshield, an Israeli baby was severely injured with permanent brain damage just a few months ago by a large rock thrown at the car she was in.

"Rocks thrown at moving vehicles can be lethal"? Far more lethal, are the shots fired from Israeli trigger happy solders, drones flying overhead waiting to terminate the life of a Palestinian.

11 - Funny that the IDF doesn't ever seem to use lethal force against settlers who throw stones.
