Israeli forces killed a Palestinian man during a clash in the West Bank on Tuesday, Palestinian officials said.

The Israeli military said its troops opened fire during what it described as a violent riot. It did not mention any casualties.

The official Palestinian news agency WAFA said Israeli forces entered the town of Tulkarm and raided several houses and that a crowd gathered in the area.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said that while troops were operating there, “a violent riot was instigated in which dozens of Palestinians hurled rocks.”
