The Israeli army carried out an arrest raid on a flashpoint town in the occupied West Bank on Monday, touching off confrontations in which medics said its troops shot dead a Palestinian high-schooler.
Medics said a high school student was killed in the morning incident. The Palestinian education ministry said he was on his way to school at the time.
The ministry said in a statement that the man died of a gunshot wound to the abdomen. Palestinian media identified the man as 18-year-old Mahmoud Al Saadi. He was not immediately claimed by any armed factions.
Local residents said the man arrested surrendered after troops surrounded his house and fired at it.
