BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and killed a young Palestinian man during clashes in Beit Jala west of Bethlehem on Tuesday afternoon, the Palestinian Ministry of Health said.

The ministry said the young man, initially identified as 21-year-old Srour Ahmad Abu Srour from Aida refugee camp to Bethlehem's north, was shot in his chest with a live round in clashes that broke out when Israeli forces raided al-Sahl street in Beit Jala.

He was rushed to Beit Jala public hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Israeli forces stormed several parts of Bethlehem and its surrounding towns of Beit Jala and Beit Sahour after gunshots were reportedly fired from a speeding car at the Container checkpoint northeast of Bethlehem.

Israeli forces reportedly set up a number of checkpoints in Beit Sahour while a surveillance drone was seen flying over the nearby town of Abu Dis.

The shooters' car was reportedly found, although the gunmen had fled the scene.

In Beit Jala, Israeli forces were reported to have ransacked a number of homes, restaurants and shops in the town's al-Sahl area, where Abu Srour was killed.
