Palestinian man killed in West Bank unrest

Israeli troops shoot demonstrator during clashes in southern city of Hebron amid continued tensions.

    A young Palestinian man has been killed during clashes with the Israeli army in the southern West Bank, hospitals sources say.

    Imad Jawabreh, 22, was hit in the chest by bullets on Tuesday, medics said about the incident on a main road at al-Arroub refugee camp near the southern city of Hebron.

    Al Jazeera's Imtiaz Tyab, reporting from West Jerusalem, said: "This attack comes after a tense day in the occupied Palestinian territories and in Israel as well."

    The Israeli army said more than a hundred Palestinian demonstrators clashed with the security forces.

    The West Bank has been gripped for weeks by unrest caused by Muslim fears of Jewish encroachment at the sacred site where al-Aqsa mosque stands, a hilltop plateau known to Muslims as Haram al-Sharif, or Noble Sanctuary, and to Jews as the Temple Mount.
