ISRAEL - Israeli troops opened fire at Palestinian stone throwers on Friday, killing a 15-year-old Palestinian and seriously wounding three, officials said.
The Israeli military said it conducted raids linked to a search for three missing Israeli teens in four towns and refugee camps in West Bank early Friday, detaining 25 suspects and searching about 200 locations.
In one raid, in the town of Dura near Hebron, Palestinian youths threw stones at soldiers, drawing army fire.
A hospital official said 15-year-old Mohammed Dodeen was killed by a bullet in the chest.
The army said nine institutions linked to Hamas were searched and materials were confiscated.
Friday's violence was a sign of the growing escalation in the West Bank as Israel's search for the three Jewish seminary students entered its second week.
Israel has alleged the three were abducted by the Islamic militant Hamas, but has offered no proof.
The army also opened fire during a raid in the Qalandiya refugee camp, where three Palestinians were seriously wounded, said an official at a hospital in the nearby city of Ramallah.
The army confirmed soldiers used life fire, saying troops were responding to "life-threatening" situations.
