An Israeli military spokeswoman said she was aware of troop activity in the area but initially had no further details.



Local witnesses said Zakaria al-Aqra, 23, was wanted by Israel and had been shot dead. Six other people were wounded. Part of Aqra's house was destroyed by an army bulldozer, they said.

According to a report by Ma'an semi-official news agency, Zakaria was a prominent Fatah activist who Israel accused of shooting and injuring an Israeli soldier a few weeks ago.



Aqra is the third Palestinian to be killed in Israeli-Palestinian clashes in the West Bank in four days. Tensions in the territory have run high during Israel's Operation Protective Edge in the Gaza Strip.

On Sunday the Military Police opened an investigation into the shooting death of Khalil al-Anati, 11, by soldiers responding to a violent protest outside Hebron on Sunday.
