JERUSALEM (AP) — The Palestinian Health Ministry says a 24-year-old man has been killed in clashes with Israeli forces in the West Bank.
It said he was shot in the chest Friday and declared dead at a Hebron hospital.
Israel’s military said Palestinians hurled fire bombs at troops during a protest. It said forces shot an “instigator” holding a firebomb as he threw it at them.
Clashes erupted across the West Bank and along Gaza’s border. At least a dozen protesters were injured.
