Palestinian killed in clash with Israeli soldiers

Jerusalem, June 14 (IANS) A 22-year-old Palestinian was killed on Sunday in a clash with Israeli soldiers in a village east of the West Bank’s Ramallah city.

The clashes broke out when Israeli soldiers stormed the village of Kofor Malek, and dozens of Palestinian young men threw stones at them, Xinhua reported.

Eyewitnesses in the village said that Abdullah Ghanayem, 22, died after an Israeli army vehicle rolled over him.

They also said that Ghanayem had been imprisoned in an Israeli jail and was released only months ago.

Last week, an Israeli soldier shot dead a Palestinian young man in a village near the northern West Bank town of Jenin.
