A 13-year-old Palestinian girl was buried Sunday in the town of Yatta, south of Hebron, after she was shot a day earlier by an Israel security guard she tried to stab at a settlement in the occupied West Bank.Hours after the attack, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas came out against Palestinian groups he said were encouraging youth to take part in an almost four-month-long surge of violence with Israel which has raised concern of wider escalation a decade after the last Palestinian uprising subsided. Twenty-four Israelis have also been killed.The bloodshed has been fueled by several factors including frustration over the 2014 collapse of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks and the growth of Israeli settlements on land Palestinians seek for an independent state.Israel says young Palestinians are being incited to violence by their leaders, including Abbas, and Islamist groups. The settler group said it had bought the homes from Palestinian owners.
