Israeli soldiers kill Palestinian during clashes in West Bank

Palestinian minister slams Arab League for failure to confront US

Confrontations broke out near the West Bank cities of Ramallah and Al-Bireh, where army troops used teargas and rubber bullets to disperse Palestinian protesters, eyewitnesses said.

Shehada was shot in the chest, according to ministry.

At Abbas' orders, the PA security agencies are continuing to closely coordinate with the Israel Defense Forces and the Shin Bet security service, and they are regularly assisting in the rescue of Israelis who stray into Area A, which is under PA control.

Avraham Binyamin, a Yitzhar spokesman, said two Palestinians were seen approaching Yitzhar with a "burning object".

Several Israeli settlers from the illegal Rahalim settlement attacked Palestinian farmers in the northern occupied West Bank of Nablus.

Senior Israeli and Saudi officials reportedly met in Cairo last week for a series of talks discussing mutual economic interests, an unnamed Palestinian Authority official told the Al Khaleej Times Friday.

Dozens of Palestinians protested throughout the West Bank on Friday including in the cities of Hebron, Nablus, Ramllah and in Kfar Kadum.

The Palestinians seek east Jerusalem as their future capital and view Trump's decision as siding with Israel on one of the thorniest issues at the heart of the conflict.

USA -led peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians broke down in 2014 and a new push by President Donald Trump's administration to restart negotiations has shown little progress so far. Its status is one of the biggest obstacles to reaching a peace agreement.

Trump announced the move in December, which drew considerable backlash and suggestions from Arab leaders, including Palestinians, that the United States can no longer be an effective or respected negotiator of peace in the Middle East. Israel says the entire city is its indivisible, and eternal capital.
