Israeli Forces Kill Palestinian Gunman in West Bank Clash

Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian gunman on Thursday during a clash in the occupied West Bank; the military said.

The incident occurred in the Palestinian city of Nablus; which the military said soldiers had entered to detain a Palestinian; whom it did not identify.

"Some Palestinian gunmen began firing at the soldiers; prompting them to respond and kill one of them;" a military spokesman wrote on Twitter. "The wanted man was arrested. There were no casualties among our forces."

The West Bank has seen sporadic violence since US-sponsored talks on founding a Palestinian state alongside Israel stalled in 2014.
