Israeli troops killed a Palestinian during a shootout in the occupied West Bank on Tuesday, the Palestinian Health Ministry said.
The violence erupted after Israel demolished the home of a Palestinian who killed three Israelis in an attack earlier this year.
The military said it demolished an apartment in the West Bank city of Jenin that belonged to Raed Hazem, the gunman who opened fire in a Tel Aviv bar in April.
During the operation, the army said “violent disturbances took place which included stone-throwing, firebombing, throwing of explosives and mass firing at the troops” and that the soldiers returned fire.
The Palestinian Health Ministry said a 29-year-old man was killed and 16 others were wounded in the fighting.
The official Palestinian news agency, Wafa, identified the man as Mohammad Musa Saabaneh. It was not immediately known if he was armed or involved in the clashes.
Israel maintains a policy of demolishing the homes of Palestinian attackers. Israeli officials say the demolitions deter future attacks, while rights groups see it as a form of collective punishment.
Israel has been conducting near-daily arrest raids in the West Bank for months, sparked by a series of deadly attacks on Israelis earlier this year in which 19 people were killed.
These attacks include the fatal shooting by Hazem, who opened fire on a crowded bar in Tel Aviv. He was later killed in a shootout with Israeli security forces.
Dozens of Palestinians have been killed during that time, many of them militants or people involved in clashes, but some civilians have also been killed, including one who inadvertently drove through a battle zone and a veteran Al Jazeera journalist covering the raids
Israel says the arrest raids are aimed at dismantling militant networks that have taken hold, particularly around the West Bank city of Jenin, which has become a stronghold for the armed struggle against Israel.
The Palestinians say the operations are aimed at maintaining Israel’s 55-year military occupation of the territories they want for an independent state.
Israel captured the West Bank, along with East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip, in the 1967 Middle East war and the Palestinians are seeking these territories for a future state.
