NABLUS: A young Palestinian was shot dead on Saturday by Israeli troops as he ran toward a checkpoint in the West Bank. As reported, Khaldun Samudi, 23, was hit by several bullets while he was running toward an Israeli checkpoint east of Nablus shouting "Allahu Akbar" (God is greatest).

According to Palestinian security officials, Samudi was a member of the radical group, Islamic Jihad, in the northern West Bank town of Jenin. He was the fourth Palestinian killed in the territory in a week.

The Israeli military said its forces shot and killed Samudi as he ran towards the checkpoint "carrying two explosive devices and a knife." The Palestinian had emerged from a taxi and headed towards soldiers manning the checkpoint, shouting "God is greatest," the spokesman added.

Tensions have been running high in the West Bank between Israelis and Palestinians following violent deaths in the occupied territory.
