Israeli troops killed a Palestinian in the occupied West Bank on Thursday, the Palestinian health ministry said. 
The ministry did not give any details as to the circumstances of the killing, stating only that “a civilian was killed by Israeli forces” after being shot in the neck at Kifl Hares, a village south of Nablus.
Provincial governor Abdullah Kamil named the victim as Ibrahim Mustapha Abu Yacoub, 29. The Israeli military said in a statement yesterday that troops opened fire on “two masked fighters” in the act of throwing a lighted petrol bomb at an army guard post outside the nearby Israeli settlement of Ariel.
“One was hit, the other fled the area,” it said. It added that the wounded man was given first aid at the scene and then taken away in a Palestinian ambulance. 
The statement said that a report of a “Palestinian fatality from gunfire in an adjacent village was received” and being looked into. The West Bank is a Palestinian territory which has been under Israeli occupation since 1967.
