Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian in armed clashes north of Ramallah on Tuesday evening, with two others injured during an exchange of fire.

Israel's army said that shots were fired at an Israeli military patrol near Ramallah, with soldiers returning fire and shooting an assailant.

Three armed Palestinians had reportedly exited a vehicle near an Israeli military patrol and opened fire at soldiers near Turmus Ayya, north of Ramallah.
 
Two Palestinians were injured in the gun battle and detained by Israeli forces.
 
Israeli soldiers prevented a Red Crescent ambulance from reaching the scene of the incident, a Ma'an reporter said, with the main Ramallah-Nablus road closed by Israel's military.
 
The victim, identified by the Palestinian Ministry of Health as Muhammad Munir Hassan Saleh, 24, from Arura village, was reportedly left on the ground for over an hour without being treated by medics.
 
Israeli forces fired tear gas and stun bomb grenades at local Palestinians who attempted to reach him.
