HEBRON, West Bank - The Israeli army killed a Palestinian protestor in the West Bank town of Hebron on Friday after clashes erupted on the sidelines of a rally against the war in Gaza, medics and witnesses said.

Mutassem Daana, 15, was killed as a result of a shot to the head after Israeli soldiers opened fire on youths throwing rocks at them near the rally that gathered after the main weekly Muslim prayers, they said.

The killing comes one day after a Jewish settler killed a 15 year old Palestinian boy in the northern West Bank, Palestinian emergency services and Israeli police said.

Nasser Awdi was killed near the town of Qalqilya when the settler opened fire at him from a passing car, said the sources.

Jewish settlements are illegal in international law because they are built on Palestinian territories occupied by Israel since 1967.

About 400 Palestinian were killed in the West Bank in 2008, despite the fact that there was no resistance rocket fire launched from there against Israeli occupation.
