RAMALLAH — A Palestinian young man was shot dead on Monday evening by Israeli occupation troops in the village of Jayoos, north of the occupied West Bank city of Qalqilia, medical sources said.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said in a statement that the 24-year-old Palestinian young man was shot dead during clashes between Palestinian youths and Israeli soldiers in the village.

The statement said that the young man was shot in the head and he arrived dead at Qalqilia Hospital.

Eyewitnesses said that clashes broke out on Monday afternoon between Palestinian young men, who threw stones at Israeli soldiers who fired tear gas and live bullets to disperse the young stones throwers.

There has been no immediate Israeli army response to the reports of the young man's death.

However, the Palestinians carry on with popular confrontations with the Israeli army in protest to US and Israeli policies towards the Palestinians.

Since the US declaration of Jerusalem as Israeli capital, 16 Palestinians were killed and more than 5,000 injured during protests in the West Bank and Gaza.
