Israel Shoots Dead Palestinian in West Bank

Two additional wounded from live fire were taken to a hospital in Slafit south. the ministry said.

"We are experiencing terrorist attacks by Arabs from the villages near the settlement, nearly daily", said Yitzhar secretariat chairman Uriah Cohen.

The Israeli army said Palestinians from Urif had approached Yitzhar settlement, sparking "a confrontation between Palestinian and Israeli civilians".

Clashes erupted across the West Bank and along Gaza's border.

Meanwhile, at least four people were wounded in the Gaza Strip Friday, one of them seriously, in clashes along the border with Israel, the Health Ministry in the Palestinian enclave said. Palestinian media outlets say Jabri was deaf and mute.

Israeli and Saudi Arabian officials have held a number of meetings in Cairo with the mediation of Egypt, an unnamed official with the Palestinian Authority told Emirati daily Khaleej Times on Friday. In December, IDF soldiers killed a legless Palestinian man protesting near the Gaza border, Palestinian officials said, causing an worldwide outcry.

The Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) blasted the decision, with senior official Saeb Erekat saying, "The American administration's decisions to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and choose the Palestinian people's Nakba as the date for this step is a blatant violation of global law".

While Israel has no official diplomatic relations with the Arab world, except Egypt and Jordan, the country's prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu previously admitted that Tel Aviv had "fruitful cooperation with Arab countries" that were kept "in general secret".

USA -led peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians broke down in 2014 and a new push by President Donald Trump's administration to restart negotiations has shown little progress so far. A number of Muslim leaders have warned the move may lead to violence.
