JERUSALEM, (Reuters) – Israeli soldiers killed a Palestinian who had been throwing firebombs at vehicles near a Jewish settlement on the occupied West Bank. The military reported that the incident occurred Thursday.

According to the Palestinian liaison office, the victim was confirmed dead and another Palestinian arrested by troops. They did not give any additional details.

Tweets from the Military (NYSE:) stated that the suspects set fire to a roadway leading to an Israeli settlement block near Bethlehem.

The military stated that soldiers near the men acted “in an effort to deter the threat” and opened fire on them. According to the military, one of them was injured and died at the spot. The second man was also taken into police custody.

Israel captured West Bank, Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem in the 1967 Middle East War. The Palestinians desire these territories to be an independent country. In 2014, the U.S. brokered peace talks between both sides.
