Youth killed; 3 bombs go off in West Bank

JERUSALEM (CNN) -- An Israeli youth was shot and killed Thursday near a settlement north of Jerusalem, Israeli officials said.

An Israeli Army spokesman said the 17-year-old was shot while riding in a car near the settlement of Givat Zeev. Other people riding in the car were not hurt.

The spokesman said the shots were fired by Palestinians in another vehicle.

He also blamed Palestinians for three bombs that went off in the West Bank earlier in the day.

Two bombs went off near Israeli army vehicles near Jenin around 5 p.m. The vehicles were damaged but no one was hurt, the spokesman said.

Within the hour another bomb exploded near an Israeli bus in the northern part of the West Bank. No one was hurt in the second attack.
