The Palestinian Authority Health Ministry says a Palestinian man has been shot dead by Israeli forces near the village of Aboud in the West Bank.

The Israel Defense Forces says he allegedly hurled stones and bottles of paint at Israeli cars on Route 465, alongside others.

“IDF soldiers conducting routine activity in the area… shot at the suspects,” the military says, adding that “hits were identified.”

The Palestinian ministry says two others were also wounded in the incident. Their conditions are listed as moderate and stable.
