- Story Text: Clashes erupted between Israeli army and Palestinians in the West Bank after a Palestinian rock-thrower killed an Israeli soldier on Tuesday (May 12).
The soldier died after being struck in the head by a rock thrown from a rooftop during an arrest raid in Yabad village near Jenin, the military said.
Clashes later erupted in the village between Israeli troops and stone hurling Palestinian youths.
The Israeli military said the rock was thrown on the soldier, a 21-year-old conscript, as his special-forces unit withdrew after detaining four Palestinians.
The Palestinians detained in Yabad are suspected of having previously thrown rocks at Israeli cars on a nearby road, and other security offences, the military spokesman said.
