Israeli troops killed a Palestinian man and wounded three others during an arrest operation in a village in the West Bank on Wednesday, a Palestinian medical official said.

The Israeli military said troops used live fire and “riot dispersal measures” after about 50 Palestinians threw rocks at them in the village of Taamun.

Residents said the Israeli force entered several houses looking for Palestinians suspected of anti-Israeli activity.

The dead man was identified as Mohammed Basharat, a 22-year-old university student who was shot in the chest, the medical official said.
