U.S. 'excessive force' comment touches nerve in Israel
By Jeffrey Heller JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel bristled on Thursday at U.S. suggestions it may have used excessive force to confront Palestinian stabbings, and also published hospital images it said refuted Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's allegation a teen suspect had been "executed". Defence Minister Moshe Yaalon accused Washington of "misreading" the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, saying shooting knife-wielding Palestinians was self-defense. Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan called the U.S. remarks "foolish".
