NABLUS West Bank (Reuters) - Israeli troops killed a Palestinian in the occupied West Bank on Monday during a raid on his house near the city of Nablus, local medical officials said.
An Israeli military spokeswoman said she was aware of troop activity in the area but initially had no further details.
Local witnesses said Zakaria al-Aqra, 23, was wanted by Israel and had been shot dead. Six other people were wounded. Part of Aqra's house was destroyed by an army bulldozer, they said.
Aqra is the third Palestinian to be killed in Israeli-Palestinian clashes in the West Bank in four days. Tensions in the territory have run high during Israel's more than month-old war with Islamist militants in the Gaza Strip.
