Two Palestinian Teens Shot Dead After Attacking Israeli in W.Bank

Two Israeli soldiers reportedly using a traffic app mistakenly wandered into a refugee camp in the West Bank overnight, sparking clashes which killed one Palestinian.

"[Waze] includes a specific default setting that prevents routes through areas which are marked as unsafe or prohibited for Israelis to drive through", Waze wrote in the AFP statement.

Illegal Eli settlement is located approximately 20 miles north of "Jerusalem" in the central West Bank. But the soldiers drifted into the refugee camp and were besieged by an angry mob throwing Molotov cocktails and stones.

The two soldiers were forced to abandon their burning jeep, one of them hiding in the courtyard of a house and shooting to defend himself and signal his position, a military spokesman said.

IDF Gen. Gadi Shamni, who used to operate in the Qalandiya area, told Israel Radio that the refugee camp had become a "no man's land", according to the Post, under control by neither Palestinians nor Israelis. Lerner said that while the rescue operation was on, troops on the ground initiated the Hannibal protocol, allowing soldiers to raise the level of alert, increase the number of forces in the area and "carry out an extraction as fast as possible in order to end the incident".

Iyad Sajadiyya, 22, was shot and killed and others were injured in the resulting fight when Israeli military attempted to reclaim the vehicle abandoned by the lost soldiers, according to several reports. The driver deviated from the suggested route and as a result, entered the prohibited area. But that setting was disabled, said Waze, which didn't explain how it had determined that.

According to information received here, the two soldiers who had been using Waze - an Israeli navigation app purchased by Google a couple of years ago.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said the two were both 17, from the adjacent village of Qaryout. "The Israeli military said 10 security personnel were wounded". A U.S. citizen and 28 Israelis were killed in the same period.
