In a separate incident, another Palestinian youth was seriously injured in an apparent hit-and-run attack by an Israeli settler on Wednesday evening, al-Araby reported.

In Jenin district, Israeli forces conducted large-scale search-and-raid campaign in Silat al-Harithiya village, northwest of Jenin, detaining three Palestinians and causing property destruction.

Having surrounded the building where Jarrar had taken refuge, Israeli forces opened fire on him as he emerged from the hideout with an M-16 rifle.

A Palestinian has been killed in clashes with the Israeli army in the city of Nablus in the occupied West Bank, according to medical sources.

Israeli forces raided Yamoun in the early morning hours and besieged a small abandoned headquarters for the Palestinian National Security Forces.

Earlier on Tuesday, Israeli forces killed a Palestinian in the West Bank village of Yamoun accusing him of being involved in an attack on a Jewish colonist who was shot dead on January 9.


In a statement, the military said its troops had been searching for a terrorist who fatally stabbed an Israeli man at the entrance to the city of Ariel in the West Bank on Monday. The U.S. move drew condemnation from across the region and sparked angry protests in the Palestinian territories - and multiple clashes with Israeli troops - that have so far left at least 24 Palestinians dead.

"The security forces will catch whoever tries to attack Israeli citizens and we will deal with them to the fullest extent of the law", Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday.

Jarrar was the son of a Hamas figure killed by Israeli forces during the second intifada of the early 2000s.

The Shin Bet Israeli military agency said that he was armed.

Israel faced sharp criticism from the administration of former United States president Barack Obama over settlement construction, but that has not been the case under his successor Donald Trump.
