One Palestinian died and three others were wounded following a skirmish with Israeli military personnel in the West Bank earlier in the day, the Palestinian Health Ministry said.

"Israeli military personnel killed a Palestinian and wounded three others in the Qalandiya refugee camp today at dawn," the ministry's press release said.

According to the Israeli armed forces, the incident occurred after Israeli military encountered local protesters while carrying out a raid near the city of Ramallah. Locals threw stones and explosives at soldiers, which prompted them to open fire.

The military also said that it had received a report about the dead Palestinian and would examine the incident.

The Qalandiya refugee camp is situated close to a Palestinian village of the same name, between Jerusalem and Ramallah. The camp was established in 1949 by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). According to UNRWA's data, up to 12,500 people are registered in the camp, which has four schools, a health center, distribution center and library.
