A Palestinian man who was part of a group that was throwing fire-bombs during a riot was killed by IDF soldiers late Monday night in the West Bank town of al-Ram, which is near Ramallah.
The deceased is Mahmoud Shawamreh, 21, of al-Ram, according to AFP.
The IDF said its troops responded to a violent riot in the town in which the demonstrators set tires on fire and threw fire-bombs at the IDF soldiers.
The soldiers fired warning shots and fired at the lower extremities of the rioters. During this IDF response Shawamreh was killed, the IDF confirmed.
A military police investigation into the death will be opened, a source said.
