Israeli soldiers killed a Palestinian man Sunday by hitting him with their jeep during clashes near Ramallah in the occupied West Bank, Palestinian security sources said.

Abdallah Ghanayem, 21, died after being struck by the vehicle during clashes that erupted in the village of Kfar Malik following a dawn Israeli army raid, the sources said.

An army spokesman told AFP that a Palestinian had died after he threw an incendiary device at a jeep and the vehicle overturned on him.

It was the second death of a Palestinian in clashes with Israeli forces in less than a week, after a man was shot dead during a confrontation with the army on Wednesday in a northern West Bank refugee camp.

According to the United Nations, Israeli soldiers have killed 11 Palestinians in the West Bank since the start of the year.
