A young Palestinian man in the occupied West Bank died from his injuries on Monday hours after being shot and detained by Israeli forces.

Israeli soldiers stormed Al-Arroub camp located north of the city of Hebron, where they held the injured man, reportedly not treating him for gunshot wounds.

"Our crews in Hebron received a martyr from the Israeli army in Al-Arroub camp, and he is being transferred to hospital," the Palestinian Red Crescent Society said in a brief statement.

Israeli forces opened fire on a vehicle near the camp, wounding the Palestinian man and detaining another, eyewitnesses told Anadolu Agency.

The wounded man was held for several hours before being handed over to the Red Crescent but died from his wounds shortly after.

A video purportedly showing Israeli soldiers with the man’s body went viral on social media.

The identity of the man was not revealed nor was information about why he was wanted by Israeli authorities.

Israeli forces raided several other towns across the West Bank at dawn, including Ramallah, Tulkarm and Jericho.

Clashes were reported in Al-Far’a camp, while a female university student was reportedly arrested in Ramallah, the seat of the Palestinian Authority.

Monday's death comes after two Palestinians were also shot dead early on Sunday.

Since the beginning of Israel’s war on Gaza on 7 October, over 200 Palestinians have been killed in the West Bank, with Israel vastly increasing its military presence and stepping up its military aggression in the occupied territory.

At least 2,700 others have been arrested since October 7.
