Palestinian killed in Israeli raid in West Bank

10 September 2014, 14:21

Jerusalem - The Israeli military says its forces shot and killed a Palestinian in an overnight raid in the West Bank.

The military says the man "attempted to hurl an explosive device" at troops, who opened fire at him. It says the troops were carrying out an arrest and were met by a "violent riot".

Ahmad Betawi, the director of Ramallah Hospital, says the man was killed by live fire to the chest early on Wednesday. He identified the man as 22-year-old Essa Qatri.

Witnesses said residents of the al-Amari refugee camp threw stones at the troops, who then opened fire.
