A Palestinian was shot dead and another wounded on Monday in a clash at a military checkpoint in the northern occupied West Bank, Palestinian hospital officials said, without giving further details.

The Israeli army said its troops fired at "two assailants who hurled an explosive device" in the vicinity of the checkpoint, near Jenin, but it did not confirm if either were hit. It said no soldiers were hurt.

Jenin hospital officials named the dead Palestinian as Abdallah Abu Talib, 20.
