Palestinian killed by Israeli troops in the West Bank

JERUSALEM (AP) – Palestinian health officials said a man was shot and killed Tuesday by Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank. The Israeli army said the man approached the troops wielding an iron bar.

Shadi Omar, 41, was shot near the city of Beita, where residents have held weeks of protests against an unauthorized Israeli settlement.

In a statement, the Israeli army said that Omar began to “ advance rapidly ” towards Israeli troops carrying an iron bar. They said the man continued to advance despite the warning fire and then they shot him.

Palestinians in villages near the Eviatar outpost say the settlement was built on their land and fear it will merge with larger settlements.

Last month there were almost daily protests against the outpost in which protesters threw stones at Israeli troops, who fired tear gas and live ammunition. At least four protesters were killed in the clashes.

According to an agreement in June between the Israeli government and the Eviatar settlers, the settlers left the area, but their buildings remained intact under the guard of the army.

Israel captured the West Bank in the 1967 war. Palestinians seek the area as the heart of a future independent state. Most of the international community considers the settlements illegal and obstacles to peace.
