Dozens of angry Israeli settlers stormed into a Palestinian village in the Israeli-occupied West Bank on Friday, shooting and setting houses and cars on fire. The rampage killed a Palestinian man and wounded 25 others, Palestinian health officials said.

The violence was the latest in an escalation in the West Bank that has accompanied the war in the Gaza Strip. An Israeli rights group said the settlers were searching for a missing 14-year-old teenager from their settlement. After the rampage, Israeli troops said they were still searching for the teen.

Later, the Israeli army said the body of the missing teen, Binyamin Achimair, had been found in the occupied West Bank after he was killed in a “terrorist attack”.

The killing came after an Israeli raid overnight killed two Palestinians, including a Hamas militant in confrontations with Israeli forces.
