The incident could aggravate tension between Israelis and Palestinians that is threatening to unravel peace negotiations.

Israeli news media reported that at least three vehicles were carrying members of a family to a Passover holiday dinner when they came under fire.

Moments ago, fire was opened at a civilian Israeli vehicle travelling on route 35 near Hebron. #IDF conducting search for the perpetrators, the Israel Defense Forces tweeted.

A 40-year-old man who was driving one of the vehicles was pronounced dead at the scene. A 28-year-old woman suffered moderate wounds, and a 9-year-old boy was lightly injured, news reports said.

It was not immediately clear how many gunmen were involved in the attack, although a passenger was quoted as saying that he saw at least one person armed with a Kalashnikov rifle and wearing a helmet firing at the vehicles from the side of the road.

The Israeli army closed the area and conducted heavy searches in nearby Palestinian towns.

The Palestinian militant groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad praised the attack but did not take responsibility for it. Islamic Jihad described the shooting as a “natural response to the occupation forces and settlers’ crimes against our people and land.”

The attack occurred a day after Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon gave three Israeli families the green light to move into a building that had been at the center of a lengthy ownership dispute between settlers and Palestinians in Hebron. Several hundred Israeli settlers live in heavily protected enclaves in the center of the predominantly Palestinian city.

Israeli soldiers kill Palestinian in West Bank; reason disputed

RAMALLAH, West Bank Israeli soldiers fatally shot a young Palestinian man on a West Bank road Wednesday, and a dispute immediately arose about the circumstances of the confrontation.

The Israel Defense Forces said the man, identified by Palestinians as Muhammad Mubarak, 20, had opened fire at civilian vehicles and at an army post. Palestinians said Mubarak, who was from the Jalazoun refugee camp near Ramallah, had no weapons and was only carrying a stick to direct traffic on a road during construction.

A Palestinian witness, Yasser Khalil of Ramallah, said Mubarak was standing in the middle of a road north of Ramallah, wearing an orange construction vest and directing traffic, when soldiers ordered him to remove the vest and then shot him.

The Israel Defense Forces said a man, whom they described as a terrorist but did not identify as Mubarak, opened fire in the direction of civilian vehicles near the settlement of Ofra, near the West Bank village of Yabroud. He then allegedly shot at a nearby IDF post.

No one was injured, although Israeli news media said the post was hit by 12 bullets. The army released a photograph of a weapon it said was recovered from the scene.

IDF soldiers acted swiftly and professionally in order to prevent casualties,” said a statement from an army spokesman, Lt. Col. Peter Lerner. “We will continue to stand guard and protect Israeli civilians from terrorist acts such as this one.

Lerner tweeted that the shooter had fired 17 rounds.

Palestinians at the scene said soldiers left the body on the road for about an hour and prevented anyone, including Palestinian medics, from approaching it.

After an ambulance crew was able to reach the body, soldiers prevented the vehicle from leaving for another hour, the witnesses said.

Soldiers also reportedly fired stun grenades at people who argued with them about gaining access to the body.

Palestinians hurt in West Bank clashes with settlers

Three Palestinians were wounded in clashes with Jews from a wildcat settlement near a village in the occupied West Bank on Saturday, witnesses and Palestinian security sources said.

Settlers from Esh Kodesh clashed with Palestinians from Qusra village, south of Nablus, throwing rocks at them and destroying their olive trees, according to witnesses and Palestinian security sources.

One Palestinian was hit by a live round fired by the settlers, and the two others by rubber bullets shot by Israeli security forces who arrived on the scene, they said.

A military spokeswoman said the clashes had broken out “between around 200 Palestinians and 25 Israelis from the West Bank who were throwing stones.”

“Security forces who arrived at the scene used anti-riot equipment to disperse them,” the spokeswoman told AFP, without elaborating.

Military sources confirmed that settlers used live rounds but said only two Palestinians were wounded in the clashes.

Confrontations have multiplied this year between Esh Kodesh settlers and Palestinians living nearby.
