"Killed in the Crossfire,"
We are fed this inert

Whose initials we should

Clock in that weasel word

said. The soldiers opened fire, killing Jihad Faqeh, an 8-year-old boy who was standing in
a side alley, hospital officials said.

Seven Palestinians were wounded, including two adults who were in serious condition.

IDF sources said the boy threw two explosive devices at troops carrying out operations in
the Casbah. The soldiers returned fire, killing the boy.
