Israeli troops kill Palestinian: witnesses

Israeli troops shot dead a Palestinian man Saturday as he ran toward a checkpoint in the occupied West Bank shouting Islamic slogans, Palestinian witnesses told AFP.

Jihad Samudi was hit by several bullets as he was running toward an Israeli checkpoint east of Nablus shouting “Allahu Akbar” (God is greater), several Palestinians witnesses said.

Last Sunday another Palestinian man was also shot dead by Israeli troops at the same checkpoint.
