TULKARM, West Bank - Israeli forces reportedly killed a Palestinian man during a clash in the West Bank on Tuesday, Palestinian officials said.

Israeli troops frequently mount raids in the West Bank to detain suspected militants.

The official Palestinian news agency WAFA said Israeli forces entered the town of Tulkarm and raided several houses and that a crowd gathered in the area.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said that while troops were operating there, "a violent riot was instigated in which dozens of Palestinians hurled rocks."

"Troops responded with riot dispersal means and later on with live fire," said the spokeswoman.

The Israeli military said its troops opened fire during what it described as a violent riot. It did not mention any casualties.

Palestinian health officials said a 22-year-old was killed after being shot in the head.
