A Palestinian official said planned peace talks with the Israelis scheduled for Monday have been called off following a deadly clash in the West Bank.So here we go again.

I'm just sorry that terrorists with blood on their hands were released from custody, which also puts the government's opposition to violent crime under a question mark.
Israeli soldiers killed three Palestinians Monday in clashes during an arrest raid in the West Bank outside Jerusalem. The violence came as Israel and the Palestinians were expected to begin rounds of peace talks, the first such meetings in five years.
The Palestinian official said the Palestinians decided to postpone Monday's meeting to protest the killings. He said the Palestinians are also upset about an Israeli announcement on Sunday pushing forward with new settlement construction in east Jerusalem. [...]
Israeli border police spokesman Shai Hakimi said officers were on a raid to apprehend a suspect when hundreds of Palestinians poured into the streets and hurled firebombs, concrete blocks and rocks at the officers.
He said officers used riot control munitions, a term that usually refers to rubber bullets and tear gas. He said police are investigating the incident.
The Israeli military said soldiers rushed to the scene after a different force came under attack. It said soldiers opened fire after they felt their lives were in "imminent danger."
"Large violent crowds such as this which significantly outnumber security forces leave no other choice but to resort to live fire in self-defense," military spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said.
