Ashraf Mohammed Ibrahim, 37, was "shot by the Israeli occupation" in the northern city of Jenin, the ministry said.

Ibrahim was an officer in the Palestinian intelligence service, according to the official Palestinian news agency WAFA.

The Israeli occupation military in a statement claimed "suspects fired heavily at the forces, who responded with fire toward him".

Six people were arrested in Jenin, according to Palestinian prisoners' advocacy groups.

Israeli forces regularly conduct raids in the West Bank, which has been occupied by Israel since the 1967 War.

Dozens of Palestinians have been killed in Jenin in recent months, including children.

Since the start of the year, at least 156 Palestinians have been killed by Israel, according to an AFP tally compiled from official sources.
