Israeli troops shot dead a Palestinian man, most probably from the Islamic Jihad, during a military operation near the northern West Bank city of Jenin, according to local witnesses.
The Palestinian was killed during a gunfight between Israeli troops and Palestinian gunmen, which broke out when Israeli soldiers entered the village of Kufr Dan, local residents said.
Israeli troops have been operating in the village in recent weeks, apparently in search of militants, they added.
Palestinian security and medical sources identified the dead man as Nur Marai, 19, an Islamic Jihad activist, saying that another activist was "clinically dead" after critically wounded in the head.
No immediate confirmation is available from the Israeli military at the moment.
