The Wild West Bank (Area A, B, C and possibly also the grey area zones x, y and z) contains not only militant settlers running amok but also trigger-happy palestinian police officers. In the history of this godforsaken (?) region there have also been incidents where Tzahal soldiers have open fired before they asked the questions. In todays case, there seems to be some kind of confusion - it´s a story about bureaucracy and (lack of) coordination. Israeli righ-wingers will use this as yet another proof that "they don´t want peace". And Barak will use this as an opportunity to improve his standing in the polls. And so on and so forth. The banality of the israeli-palestinian conflict.
