Palestinians claim man killed by Israel troops after West Bank march marking ‘Nakba’

Palestinian Authority officials claim Israeli troops have shot dead a man as clashes broke out after a West Bank march commemorating the Palestinian “Nakba,” or catastrophe, of Israel’s creation in 1948.

“A young man was killed by occupation bullets at the northern entrance of the city of Al-Bireh,” the Palestinian Authority health ministry says.

The PA’s official news agency WAFA reports the man killed is a 20-year-old student at Birzeit University.

The Israeli army does not immediately respond to a request for comment.
