Israeli Troops Shoot Dead Palestinian in West Bank
A Palestinian man was shot and killed on Monday during clashes with Israeli forces in the south of the occupied West Bank, the Palestinian health ministry and medics said.
Palestinian medical sources identified the man as 22-year-old Omar al-Badawi, who was hit in the chest with live fire before being taken to Ahali hospital in the nearby city of Hebron, where he was pronounced dead.
The Israeli army did not immediately comment on the incident at Al Arroub refugee camp.
The clashes came as Palestinians in the West Bank marked the 15th anniversary of the death of former president Yasser Arafat.
Medics also reported Israeli use of live fire in clashes at Fawwar, south of Hebron.
