Israeli troops shot dead a 19-year-old Palestinian in Jelazoun refugee camp near the West Bank city of Ramallah early Monday, Palestinian medical and security sources told AFP.
Ahmad Arafat was shot in the chest during clashes with the Israeli army, the sources said. The army was conducting arrests in the camp as part of its massive manhunt for three missing Israeli youths.
The Israeli military could not immediately comment.
The Palestinian security sources could not immediately say whether the army had intended on arresting Arafat. They noted he had been released from Israeli prison one week ago.
The army was detaining dozens of Palestinians throughout the West Bank as part of its attempts to find three youths Israel said were kidnapped by Hamas near Hebron on Thursday.
