Palestinia­n killed during clash with Israeli settlers


NABLUS, West Bank: A Palestinia­n was shot and killed on Saturday in what began as a clash between Palestinia­ns and Israeli settlers in the occupied West Bank, Palestinia­n health officials said.

Both sides blamed the other for instigatin­g the violence that erupted between residents of a Jewish settlement and a nearby Palestinia­n village.

The Israeli military said soldiers arrived at the scene and “used riot dispersal means and fired live rounds.”

The incident, it said, would be reviewed.

Palestinia­n officials said a 19year-old was killed and a second person was wounded, but it was unclear whether they were shot by Israeli soldiers or settlers. — Reuters
