Israel says its military killed a Palestinian man from the Hamas militant group during an arrest raid. The operation was part of the search for two Palestinians suspected in the deaths of three Israeli teens whose bodies were found Monday.
The man killed in the raid has been identified as Yosuf abu Zaghah; his age is being reported as 16 by some news outlets, and up to 20 by others.

Jackson Ellis will soon head to fourth grade. Diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, he's been receiving publicly funded services since he was 15 months old. Jackson's mother, Rebecca Ellis, a single parent, has made education advocacy her career. She's fighting to make sure her son gets the help he needs at his Mandeville, Louisiana public school. That's always been an uphill battle. But, since the state adopted the Common Core State Standards, Ellis says, it's become even harder.
Public employee unions suffered a major defeat at the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday, with worse probably to come soon.
