A Palestinian man was shot dead in a clash with soldiers and settlers.

According to an Associated Press account of the incident on Friday, it began when several hundred settlers burned a grove near the Palestinian village of Qusra in the central West Bank.

Troops arrived and, after using tear gas in an attempt to quell the riot, fired live rounds, as did settlers. Issam Badran, 35, was killed.

Israel has deployed troops throughout the West Bank in anticipation of unrest in the wake of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ planned request Friday for statehood recognition from the United Nations.
