The Israeli military said its forces shot and killed Dwika who was throwing stones at drivers in the West Bank. The military said forces on patrol Monday were confronted by a group of stone throwers. The forces called out to them to stop and fired live rounds into the air to disperse them, then opened fire on the stone throwers when they persisted.

Some will buy the birds to eat them as a delicacy, but most will buy them only to set them free as an act of mercy. This year, however, the nearby fighting with the Islamic State group has driven many of the skittish birds away.
