A Palestinian teen who threatened Israeli troops near the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron was shot and killed.

It was later learned that the boy, 17, had pulled what turned out to be a toy gun on an Israeli Border Police officer. The boy was shot in his chest and abdomen by a female officer who witnessed the threat, Ynet reported.

Other Palestinians who began rioting at the scene were dispersed by Israeli troops using tear gas and stun grenades, according to Ynet.
