Palestinian man fatally shot in Israeli raid on West Bank town
A man died early Sunday after he was shot as Israeli troops raided the town of Qarawat Bani Hassan in the occupied West Bank, the Palestinian health ministry said.
The ministry identified the man killed as 30-year-old Mujahed Daoud. He was among five Palestinians wounded Saturday by Israeli live fire. Daoud was shot in the chest, the report said.
The official Palestinian news agency, Wafa, said fighting broke out when Israeli forces entered the town and tried to seize agricultural machinery from farmers working off their land.
Also early Sunday, the Israeli military said its troops shot a Palestinian who hurled a Molotov cocktail at a bus near Hebron. The army gave no other details, including the man's condition.
Late on Friday, Israeli forces killed 23-year-old Qais Shijaiyah, a Palestinian who had opened fire at the Israeli settlement of Beit El, north of Ramallah.
More than 120 Palestinians have been killed in the West Bank and east Jerusalem this year, making 2022 the deadliest year in the occupied territory since 2015.
Israel claims most of the Palestinians killed have been militants, but civilians have also been killed.
