West Bank: Palestinian shot in clash with settlers

A Palestinian medic says an Israeli settler has shot and critically wounded a Palestinian teenager in the West Bank, the second such shooting in two days.
Eid Abu Monshar of the Red Crescent medical service says the 17-year-old was shot in the head during a clash with settlers near Hebron.
Palestinians and Israeli settlers often clash in the area.
Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld says police believe an Israeli opened fire, wounding the teenager. He said Friday that police are investigating.
On Thursday, an 18-year-old was shot and killed in unclear circumstances in a different part of the West Bank.
Rosenfeld said police now believe a settler opened fire after being attacked by a group of Palestinians, killing the teenager.
