A Palestinian was shot and killed during clashes with Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank on Thursday, the Palestinian health ministry said.
"Yahya Taha, 21, from the village of Qatanna... died after he was shot and wounded in the head during clashes," a ministry statement said, referring to an area northwest of Jerusalem.
The death brings to 95 the number of Palestinians killed in violence since October 1, including an Arab Israeli.
The violence has also left 17 Israelis, an American and an Eritrean dead.
More than 800 Palestinians have been arrested over the past two months, Israeli Defence Minister Moshe Yaalon told public radio on Thursday.
Attempts to ease the tensions, including a visit by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Tuesday, have so far proved unsuccessful.
Palestinian group Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, has called a day of anger for Friday.Güncelleme Tarihi: 26 Kasım 2015, 09:54
