Palestinian Killed in West Bank During Clashes With Israeli Army

A Palestinian was killed and eight others wounded during clashes that erupted on Friday after a funeral near the West Bank city of Hebron, Palestinian medics said.

The 27-year-old man who was killed was among a group attending the burial of a Palestinian who had died after being released from an Israeli jail.

Palestinians hurled rocks, Molotov cocktails and burning tires at Israeli forces, who responded with riot dispersal techniques, an Israeli army spokeswoman said. Troops fired at the legs of the main perpetrators with small caliber weapons, hitting four, she said.
