A soldier wounded in a shooting near the West Bank settlement of Shavei Shomron earlier today has succumbed to his wounds at a hospital in central Israel, the military says.

The soldier was securing a march held by settlers in the area. The alleged Palestinian gunman, who apparently opened fire from a passing car, fled the area.

The soldier was taken to the Meir Medical Center in Kfar Saba in serious condition, where he later died.
