Israeli troops kill Palestinian in West Bank clashes

Israeli troops kill Palestinian in West Bank clashes

The Palestinian man, who was mentally disabled and suffered from speech impairment, leaves behind a four-year-old child.

A Palestinian youth shot by Israeli forces during clashes in a West Bank village succumbed to his wounds on Saturday, health ministry and local media said.

The presence of the settlers within and around Palestinian towns and villages causes near-daily friction between the communities.

Israeli settler organizations have been continually trying to take over many homes and Arab property in the area, purporting the land where these homes were built belonged to Jewish organizations and individuals prior to 1948.

"By unethically stripping the residency of Palestinians from Quds and depriving the rights of those Palestinians to remain in their own city, the Israeli government is acting in defiance of global law and is violating worldwide human rights and humanitarian laws", senior PLO member Hanan Ashrawi said in a statement.

On Friday, Israeli forces shot and killed 24-year-old Mohammad al-Jaabari in the southern West Bank city of Hebron during a confrontation with the army.

Our performance against Everton was very good and if we carry on like that we will have a really good chance. Can we make improvements, can we play better, can we do things much better? - of course, we can.

The Israeli army said a "riot" had broken out in Hebron and that protesters had attacked soldiers.

The official Palestinian news agency Wafa said the man had disabilities, without elaborating.

During a press statement delivered on Saturday, Ferwana added that in the latest count, Israel was holding around 250 bodies of Palestinians who died or were killed under various circumstances, some as far back as the seventies, eighties and nineties of last century.

Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh said on Friday that the group would not be able to contain the mass protests on the day the USA moves its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Trump's decision, welcomed by Israel, has been condemned by leaders and foreign ministers across the world, who have said the city's status should be determined through negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.

Tensions have risen since US President Donald Trump's recognition in December of Jerusalem as Israel's capital - a decision that has infuriated Palestinians.
