A Palestinian man shot in clashes with Israeli forces in October has died of his wounds, the health ministry in the occupied West Bank said on Saturday.

Mohammed Shreyteh, 28, had been shot in the head during the clashes that took place on October 26 in the West Bank.

At the time, witnesses said the violence erupted when Israeli settlers came to visit a site near the West Bank village of Al-Mazraa al-Gharbiya, and that Palestinians pelted them with stones.

Israeli occupation forces then intervened and fired tear gas and ammunition at the Palestinians, according to the witnesses.

During those clashes another Palestinian, Othman Ladawda, 33, was killed, the health ministry in the West Bank said at the time.

He was hit with live ammunition, with the bullet piercing organs in his lower abdomen, the ministry said.
