A Bedouin youth was killed, on Wednesday at night, and another youth was seriously wounded during a scuffle that took place between Bedouins and a group of Russian Jews in Be’er Sheva, south of Israel. The scuffle started between some youths on both sides and then developed to a bigger conflict that led to the death of the youth and the serious injury of another.

The slain youth died shortly after he was moved to the Soroka hospital in Be’er Sheva.

The Israeli police initiated an investigation into the causes of the conflict, and apprehended several residents.

The police are also trying to identify some of the youths who escaped before the police arrived at the scene.
