A Palestinian was shot dead during clashes with the Israeli army in the occupied West Bank on Monday, the Palestinian health ministry said.

The man died during clashes south of Bethlehem in the southern West Bank, the ministry said in a statement, without giving his name or age.

Sources from the village of Tuqu where the incident took place named the victim as Qusai al-Amour, 17, saying he had been shot in the chest.

The Israeli army did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Since October 2015, 249 Palestinians, 40 Israelis, two Americans, a Jordanian, an Eritrean and a Sudanese have been killed in a wave of violence, according to an AFP count.
