A 21-year-old Palestinian man was shot in the chest by Israeli troops during a night raid on village near city of Jenin, medical official say.
An Israeli military spokeswoman said the soldiers had been on an overnight raid in a village near the city of Jenin, in the occupied West Bank, when about 50 Palestinians started hurling stones at them.
Ahmed Imad Yusef, 21, was shot in the chest during the confrontation, medical workers said. Locals said Yusef was unarmed and worked in a vegetable market.
The military spokeswoman said reports of a Palestinian casualty were being investigated.
Violence has been on the rise in recent weeks in the West Bank, with seven other Palestinians shot dead in the territory by Israeli troops. Three Israelis have also been killed since the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks resumed in July, raising doubts about any imminent peace.
