Israeli settlers stone to death Palestinian woman in West Bank

During one protest in July, a Gaza sniper shot and killed an Israeli soldier.

A group of Palestinian terrorists set off a bomb on the Israel-Gaza Strip border on Friday and attacked a nearby IDF position.

A middle-aged Palestinian woman has been stoned to death by Israeli settlers in the northern part of the occupied West Bank, reports say.

Israeli army spokesperson Jonathan Conricus said on Twitter an "organised attack" had involved around 20 Palestinians crossing the border after an explosive device destroyed a portion of the fence.

The order was issued by Israeli minister of military affairs Avigdor Lieberman.

On Friday, Israeli forces killed seven Palestinians during their peaceful weekly protests in the besieged territory.

The terms of the deal saw Doha, a longtime Hamas backer, pledge to pay $60 million (52 million euros) for fuel to be brought into Gaza over six months to supply the strip's sole power plant.

The ministry said four were killed in one location, where the Israeli military said it opened fire on a crowed of Palestinians who breached the fence and approached an army post.

Israel accuses the Islamist group Hamas, which controls Gaza, of orchestrating the protests along the border fence to provide cover for attacks and to distract from Gaza's economic plight.

On Thursday, the IDF arrested a 19-year old Palestinian suspected of committing a stabbing attack that moderately wounded two Israelis outside an army base in the West Bank earlier the same day. They also seek the right to return to lands that Palestinians fled or were driven from upon Israel's founding in 1948.

Hamas' chief, Ismail Haniyeh, who attended a protest in east Gaza City, said that "the determination of the Palestinian people will break the siege".

Although the fuel was aimed at making the situation better in Gaza- where residents are now only receiving around four hours of electricity per day on average - the Qatar-bought delivery was protested by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, as it was arranged with Hamas rather than his government.
