Bethlehem - Ma'an - A Palestinian university student was killed by an Israeli settler at a hitchiking post on Route 60 near the Shilo Israeli settlement between Nablus and Ramallah in the northern West Bank on Monday, Israeli and Palestinian security sources said.

Palestinian security sources said 22-year-old Abdul-Latif Hurub from the southern West Bank town of Khras west of Hebron was shot and killed by an Israeli settler.

Local sources told Ma'an's reporter in Hebron that Israeli forces ransacked the victim's family house after his death.

Hurub was studying Business Administration at Birzeit University near Ramallah. On Tuesday, students from Birzeit University told Ma'an that Israeli forces broke into the student dormitory where Hurub had been living. They evacuated all the students and inspected the building.

For its part, Fatah's Al-Aqsa Brigades claimed that one of their activists was killed as he attempted to grab a rifle from an Israeli soldier near the Shilo settlement.
