The Israeli military says its forces have shot and killed a Palestinian in an overnight raid in the occupied West Bank.

Ahmad Betawi, the director of Ramallah Hospital, said the man was killed by live fire to the chest early Wednesday. He identified the man as 22-year-old Essa Qatri.

Witnesses said residents of the Al-Amari refugee camp threw stones at the troops, who then opened fire.

While violence raged between Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza this summer, the West Bank remained largely quiet. Still, some flare-ups occurred and a number of Palestinians were killed in separate incidents.
