At least one Palestinian was shot and killed in the West Bank settlement of Beit El Thursday evening after confronting IDF forces stationed in the area.
According to a IDF spokesperson, the incident began after three Palestinians exited their vehicle and lobbed a Malatov cocktail at security forces.
In response, IDF forces responded by opening fire at on the perpetrators.
"The Palestinian suspects then attempted to flee," the IDF said, with one passenger being struck and killed.
