The Palestinian health ministry confirmed the man's death and that of a second man it said was shot dead by Israeli occupation forces near Jenin.

Two more Palestinians wounded by live Israeli fire in clashes in the northern West Bank were pronounced dead shortly later.

The Palestinian Red Crescent said Friday's West Bank clashes, affecting multiple locations, had left more than 100 people wounded, including from tear gas and rubber bullets.

A Palestinian security source told AFP that Friday's unrest was "the most intense since the second intifida," the uprising that began in 2000.

Amid the surge in West Bank violence, the Gaza conflict raged on Friday, with Israeli occupation forces continuing a bombing campaign.
