Breaking: 14-year old 'lightly wounded' in roadside explosion by 'peace partners'

A 14-year old boy (JPost says 13) was 'lightly wounded' in a roadside explosion in the southern Hebron Hills just over an hour ago. Haaretz has details, including a claim of responsibility by the 'good terrorists' from 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen's al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade.
A 14-year-old boy was wounded Thursday night in a terror attack near Hebron. The boy suffered light to moderate wounds and was evacuated to Hadassah University Hospital in Jerusalem for medical care.

Hospital officials reported that the boy sustained wounds in the leg, apparently from shrapnel, and was being treated in the trauma unit.

Israel Defense Forces troops arrived at the scene and began combing the area in search of the assailants.

The IDF believe that the explosion was caused by an explosive device at the side of the road. At first they thought it was a shooting attack aimed at the vehicle in which the boy was traveling, but the driver reported that she had heard a very loud explosion.

The militant Fatah offshoot Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade claimed responsibility for the attack, Army Radio reported.

Earlier Thursday, militants opened fire at an Israeli bus south Nablus. The bus sustained light damage but no casualties were reported.
Sounds like 2000 all over again.


Israel Radio has it as a 13-year old from Jerusalem, that he's 'lightly to moderately' wounded and that it was a roadside bomb. They also refer to al-Aqsa (or maybe not to al-Aqsa) as a 'small offshoot of Fatah.' Hmm.
