Israeli soldiers shot and killed a Palestinian in the occupied West Bank on Friday, an army spokeswoman said.
The man, identified by locals as 41-year-old Fayez Faraj, was wounded in the Hebron shooting and taken to an Israeli hospital, where he died.
Locals said Faraj, a father of 10, had worked in a shoe factory. Television footage showed a small yellow cutting blade lying next to his body.
Such incidents have blocked a U.S.-backed efforts to deal on Middle East.
Many Palestinians remain bitter, however, about the absence of peace talks with Israel that might halt settlement expansion and lead to the creation of a Palestinian state.
