A Palestinian man was shot and killed by Israeli forces during a clash in a village near Jenin early Thursday, Palestinian sources said.
A report in the Ma’an news agency said Ahmed Tazata, 20, was killed during a confrontation with Israel Defense Forces troops at the entrance to the village of Qabatiya, south of Jenin in the northern West Bank.
Palestinian medics said the man was shot in the chest and died of his wounds.
An IDF spokesperson said a clash broke out in the village after some 50 Palestinians threw stones at IDF troops, who responded with anti-riot measures.
She added that troops fired into the air after feeling their life was in danger and said the army said it was checking into the report that a person was killed.
There were no injuries on the Israel side, the army said.
According to Ma’an, the troops entered the town to arrest a number of wanted suspects at about 1 a.m. Thursday.
The IDF said it arrested four people in the town, and eight others around the West Bank.
On Tuesday, clashes between Palestinians and troops were reported in two other villages near Jenin after Israeli forces entered.
Separately, the Islamic militant group Hamas says Israel arrested four of its senior members in Ramallah.
Several Palestinians have been killed in fighting with Israeli soldiers seeking to arrest militants in the West Bank in recent months.
