JERUSALEM — Israel's military says troops opened fire and killed a Palestinian among a group that threw large rocks at their vehicle.

It said soldiers driving near Ramallah in the West Bank came under a hail of rocks and boulders Friday morning.

After a rock smashed their windshield, soldiers — fearing their lives were in danger — fired warning shots in the air and then fired at the lower extremities of their attackers, the military said. It said one Palestinian was hospitalized. Palestinian doctors said the 17-year-old had been shot twice and was dead on arrival.

The bloodshed comes on the heels of a surge in deadly Palestinian attacks against Israelis. Two Israelis were killed in separate West Bank shootings, and two others wounded in stabbing attacks.
