Hebron, Palestinian Territories (ANTARA News) - Israeli troops shot dead a Hamas militant and wounded two other Palestinians with live fire during a clash with stone-throwers near the southern West Bank city of Hebron on Tuesday, Palestinian security officials said.

They named the dead man as Mahmud al-Titi, 23, and said he was a member of the militant Islamic group.

Medics said one man was moderately wounded and one lightly hurt in the clash in the Al-Fawwar refugee camp, south of the city.

Army radio said troops entered the camp in pursuit of Palestinians who had thrown stones and petrol bombs and fired when they came under attack.

An army spokeswoman said she had no immediate word on any clash in the area.
