A 29-year-old Palestinian died of his wounds on Friday night after being shot by soldiers in the West Bank, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.
Ibrahim Abu Yaqoub, a resident of the village of Kifl Hares, was shot in the neck, the ministry said.
On Friday night the Israeli army said two Palestinians threw a firebomb toward an IDF patrol in the nearby village of Kifl Haris. The IDF initially said in a statement that soldiers opened fire in response and wounded one of the two.
The Palestinian news agency Ma'an named the wounded Palestinian as 17-year-old Mohammed Abed Al-Salem, who was hit in his leg, and said his friend had been killed.
Abdullah Kmail, governor of Salfit Governorate, where Yaqoub lived, said in a statement soldiers had shot Yaqoub "in cold blood as he was walking with friends," without them doing anything unusual before the shooting.
"Israel bears the responsibility for the unjustified shooting. This is another crime against the Palestinian people. This continues the series of crimes Israel commits against the Palestinians in the West Bank," the statement read.
