Palestinians: Protester shot dead by Israeli fire

(AP)

JERUSALEM (AP) — A Palestinian medical official says a man has died after he was shot in the head by Israeli security forces in the West Bank.

Yatta hospital director Ziyad Abu Zahra identified the man as 25-year-old Mahmoud Titi.

An Associated Press photographer says the man was among dozens throwing rocks at Israeli troops near the city of Hebron.

The Israeli military did not immediately confirm Tuesday’s incident but said it is looking into it.

Palestinians have increasingly complained in recent weeks of the use of live fire by Israeli forces. The military says it only uses live fire in situations it considers life-threatening.
