Newspaper Review: Israel's Killing of another Two Palestinians Focus of Dailies.

RAMALLAH, November 26, 2015 (WAFA)- The fatal shooting of a Palestinian near the Hebron refugee camp of al-Fawwar purportedly following an alleged stabbing attempt coupled with news that a Palestinian teen who was shot by Israeli forces two weeks ago during Ramallah clashes has succumbed to his wounds hit the front page headlines in the three Palestinian Arabic dailies.

The three papers said a Palestinian was shot dead by Israeli forces in al-Fawwar refugee camp and that another Palestinian from the Ramallah village of Deir Ghassana succumbed to critical wounds.

Al-Ayyam said the first man was executed and al-Hayat al-Jadida explained that he was left to bleed to death.

Al-Quds added that an Israeli soldier was seriously injured in the alleged stabbing attack near al-Fawwar refugee camp.

Highlighting US Secretary of State John Kerrys efforts to restore calm and his meeting with President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah, al-Ayyam quoted an unidentified Palestinian official as saying that Kerry linked any possible political action with restoring clam on the ground.

Kerry was also reported in al-Ayyam as stating that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict may spiral out of control and that it should be quickly solved.

Kerry was also reported in al-Hayat al-Jadida as stating that Palestinian and Israeli leaders have reached a critical point.

PLO Executive Committee Secretary-General Saeb Erekat was reported in al-Hayat al-Jadida as saying in this regard that Kerry has not broken new grounds and that the Palestinian leadership is at odds with the US Administration.

Furthermore, the three dailies reported that Israeli Knesset has approved, during a preliminary reading, a bill that would allow the detention of children under 14 who are convicted of acts of terror.

Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon was reported in al-Quds and al-Ayyam as announcing that Israel would build a fence between Hebron and Israeli settlement of Kiryat Gat.

Both al-Ayyam and al-Hayat al-Jadida reported on BTselem's Executive Director Hagai El-Ad as calling upon Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to halt extrajudicial killings of Palestinians.
