Israeli soldiers shot and killed a Palestinian youth, aged 17, in a confrontation after darkness fell on Wednesday in the occupied West Bank, where tensions have risen since the death of a Palestinian prisoner this week, a Palestinian medic said.

The Israeli military confirmed troops opened fire on several Palestinians who threw fire-bombs at a guard post in the Tulkarm region of the West Bank. A Palestinian medic said troops later delivered the teenager's body to a local hospital.
