Israel Defense Forces troops shot and killed a Palestinian man during stone-throwing clashes in the West Bank on Sunday, Palestinian medical sources said.
Doctors say Mufid Saleh Walweel, 22, was shot in the head after a protest against Israel's military operation in the Gaza Strip became violent.

Police on Monday arrested seven Israeli Arabs, three of them youths, for allegedly hurling stones and setting fire to tires near the entrance to the Mishad municipal council in the north.

Authorities have arrested 49 people for disturbing the peace since the Israel Air Force began its aerial offensive in the Gaza Strip on Saturday.
