Palestinian man was killed by Israeli gunfire in the West Bank on Saturday. (Representational)Ramallah, Palestinian Territories:
A Palestinian man was killed by Israeli gunfire in the West Bank Saturday, Palestinian authorities said, an incident Israel's army described as a "violent confrontation" between Palestinians and Jewish settlers.
The Palestinian health ministry said Mohammad Fareed Hasan, who was in his 20s, was killed in his village of Qusra near the city Nablus by Israeli gunfire, while two others were wounded.
Israel's army, which declined to comment on the reported fatality, said it had responded to "a violent confrontation between tens of Palestinian and Israeli settlers (that) developed adjacent to the village of Qusra... during which both sides hurled rocks at each other".
