Israeli forces have shot dead a demonstrator in clashes with Palestinians who were protesting the separation barrier in the West Bank.
Palestinian medics reported Bassam Ibrahim, 30, sustained serious wounds after Israeli troops fired at him during a Friday demonstration in Bil’in and later died at a hospital in Ramallah.
According to Ma’an news agency, the man had previously been listed in serious condition following a direct shot to the stomach from an Israeli fired tear-gas canister.

Witnesses said the projectile was labeled as “40 mm bullet, special/long range” in Hebrew, the same type of weapon that critically injured a foreign activist in Ni’lin on 13 March.
Tristan Anderson — an American national — was shot in the head from a distance of 60 meters.
The Israeli authorities said they would launch an investigation into the incident.
The West Bank town of Bil’in is the scene of weekly demonstrations against the Israeli ‘apartheid wall’ in the nearby village of Ni’lin.
