Palestinian official: Israel kills unarmed man in West Bank

Palestinians killed

Governor Kamel Hmeid said Israeli troops in the adjacent village of Al Khader fired at a vehicle and wounded the driver late on Wednesday night.

Hours later, the Israeli military issued a statement saying that a soldier stationed at a post near Bethlehem had "identified rocks being thrown at Israeli vehicles (and) in response, he fired his weapon". The man was identified by the Palestinian Health Ministry as 26-year-old Ahmad Manasra from the local village of Wadi Fuqin.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) said its medics rushed to the scene, but the soldiers stopped them, and refused to allow them to reach the two Palestinians, before the army moved their corpses to Huwwara military base, south of Nablus. As Manasra was returning to his auto, the Israeli soldiers shot and killed him, he said.

Commenting on the Bethlehem-district raid, security sources said that the Palestinian was detained from Aida refugee camp.

Since 2015, Palestinians have killed over 50 Israelis in stabbings, shootings and car-ramming attacks in the West Bank. "Details regarding the incident are being reviewed and the incident will be examined".

Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian man Tuesday they suspected of carrying out an attack in the occupied West Bank on Sunday, which resulted in the killing of an Israeli soldier and a rabbi. Wabeb Manasrah, a cousin of the slain Palestinian, confirmed the governor's account.

Residents check a damaged house where a Palestinian gunman was killed by Israeli forces, in Abwein village, in the Israeli-occupied West Bank. Israeli-Palestinian peace talks collapsed in 2014.
