Village residents said there were no disturbances or clashes in the area at the time of the shooting, which occurred near the village of Beit Ur Al-Tahta, west of the city of Ramallah. The man was returning from work in Israel when he was shot, they 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.
On Wednesday an Israeli raid into the Jenin refugee camp in the northern West Bank killed four people and wounded some 30 others, while a raid in a separate refugee camp killed another Palestinian. A sixth Palestinian was killed by Israeli fire in unrest in the Gaza Strip.
The Palestinian Health Ministry said two men — Asid Abu Ali, 21, and Abdulrahman Abu Daghash, 32 — were killed by Israeli fire. The raid caused heavy damage to the camp's main road, severing water pipes and flooding parts of the street.
Their joint statement mentioned that the right to self-defence does not justify breaking law and neglecting Palestinians' rights. The Arab foreign ministers also condemned forced displacement and collective punishment in Gaza, it added.
"Without fuel, there will be no humanitarian response, no aid reaching people in need, no electricity for hospitals, no access to clean water, and no availability of bread," UNRWA Commissioner-General Philippe Lazzarini said.
Video clips posted on social media platforms showed fire breaking out in one of the residential apartments. Israeli Army Radio said that a missile fell on a residential building.
The Hostages and Missing Families Forum said in a statement that relatives were angry over the "absolute uncertainty regarding the fate of the hostages held (in Gaza), who were also subject to the heavy bombings".
"We are taking over Grand Central Station with THOUSANDS of people, including rabbis, elected officials, celebrities, elders and children, because this must stop. We're showing mass refusal in the face of genocidal violence against Palestinians," said the group Jewish Voice for Peace.
