"Mohammad Jibril Roummaneh died as a result of serious injuries caused by bullets fired by the occupying forces in El-Bireh" northeast of Ramallah, said the Palestinian Ministry of Health in a statement.
It reported that a second Palestinian had been injured but gave no details.
Hamas issued a statement describing Roummaneh as one of its members who fell as a "heroic martyr" while "defending the freedom of (his) people" near the settlement of Psagot.
The statement was accompanied by an image of a very young man.
"Assailants hurled Molotov cocktails at a military post adjacent to the (settlement) of Psagot", next to El-Bireh, the Israeli occupation army said.
"Soldiers... identified the suspects and responded with live fire," Tel Aviv added.
At least 242 Palestinians have been killed by Israel since the beginning of the year. 32 Israelis were also killed in violence linked to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
