Israeli troops shot dead a Palestinian during clashes in the occupied West Bank, the Palestinian health ministry and the Israeli army said.

Stone-throwing clashes broke out when Israeli soldiers raided the Palestinian village of Tubas before dawn, witnesses said.

Saddam Bani Odeh, 26, died in hospital from a bullet wound to the lungs following the clashes on the road into the northern town of Tubas, the ministry said.

"The troops responded with fire towards the suspicious vehicle," the army statement said, adding that no soldiers were hurt but the military was "aware of reports that a Palestinian was killed."

Clashes routinely break out in the West Bank when Israeli forces enter Palestinian-administered towns to make arrests or after demonstrations.

Excluding annexed east Jerusalem, around 475,000 Israelis live in settlements in the West Bank regarded as illegal under international law alongside more than 2.8 million Palestinians.
