Israeli troops shot dead a Palestinian and wounded two others during an operation in the occupied West Bank.

A military spokeswoman said that the incident took place in the city of Jenin on Tuesday when Israeli "troops responded to the live fire in order to eliminate the threat.”

“Initial reports indicate that one Palestinian was killed and two injured," the spokeswoman added.

She said that two Israeli soldiers also were wounded in raid.

Doctors at a Jenin hospital said Majed Lahlouh, 20, was killed with a bullet to his heart. The wounded men sustained gunshot wounds, they said.

Tuesday's shooting was followed by angry protests by locals against Israel and the Palestinian Authority, which has limited self-rule in the occupied West Bank, as well as against the resumption of the peace talks.
