A Palestinian man was killed in clashes today with the Israeli army in the occupied West Bank, the Palestinian health ministry said.
"Troops fired live rounds towards a main instigator who held a firebomb with the intent to hurl it," a spokesman said, adding an investigation had been launched.
Clashes between Palestinians and Israeli soldiers are common after Friday Muslim prayers.
Meanwhile, at least four people were wounded in the Gaza Strip on Friday, one of them seriously, in clashes along the border with Israel, the health ministry in the Palestinian enclave said.
Tensions have risen since US President Donald Trump's recognition in December of Jerusalem as Israel's capital -- a decision that has infuriated the Palestinians.
Israel occupied mainly Palestinian east Jerusalem in the 1967 Six-Day War and later annexed it in a move never recognised by the international community. It sees the entire city as its capital.
At least 30 Palestinians and two Israelis have been killed since Trump's December 6 announcement.
