Israeli troops shot dead a Palestinian early on Wednesday during clashes in the hotspot town of Jenin in the occupied West Bank, Palestinian sources said.
Mohammad Marei, 25, died from a bullet wound to the chest, the Palestinian health ministry said.
The Palestinians’ official Wafa news agency said he was killed during an Israeli raid in the town.
The Palestinian Islamic Jihad militant group said that one of its men was killed “confronting the occupation forces” in Jenin, where military raids have increased after men from the area carried out several deadly street attacks on Israelis.
The Israeli military said its forces, who had been conducting “counter-terrorism activities,” responded with live fire towards a number of Palestinian suspects who had thrown explosives at them.
US-brokered peace talks aimed at establishing a Palestinian state in East Jerusalem, the West Bank, and Gaza collapsed in 2014 and have shown no sign of revival.
Israeli and Palestinian leaders are expected to meet separately next month with US President Joe Biden during his visit to the region.
