A young Palestinian man has been killed after Israeli military forces clashed with a group of Palestinians in the occupied West Bank, and fired live bullets to disperse the crowd.

Palestinian sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Israeli military vehicles rolled into Khursa village, located seven kilometers (4.3 miles) southwest of al-Khalil (Hebron), late on Monday.

The Israeli forces broke into dozens of homes and violently searched them, causing excessive property damage.

A 21-year-old Palestinian, identified as Dhia Abdulhalim, sustained gunshot wounds, and was pronounced dead shortly afterwards.

Abdulhalim’s death triggered a protest in the village, with Israeli troops firing live bullets, stun grenades as well as tear gas canisters to break up the gathering. Scores of the Palestinians, including women and children, suffered tear gas inhalation.

Israeli troopers also took away Abdulhalim’s body to an unknown location.

The situation is still tense in Khursa as Israeli snipers have been positioned on the roofs of Palestinian houses, and sporadic skirmishes are reported.

Israeli forces have on numerous occasions raided Palestinian homes in the West Bank in the past recent months, and abducted dozens of Palestinians. The detainees are usually transferred to Israeli prisons, where they are interrogated for weeks without being charged.

Blast near Egyptian border

Meanwhile, at least five Israeli troopers have sustained injuries when a bomb explosion ripped through their military vehicle near the Egyptian border.

Israeli sources, requesting to be identified, said the soldiers were travelling in a car on Monday, when the vehicle touched off an improvised explosive device, triggering the explosion, Arabic-language Ma’an news agency reported.
