Palestinian wounded in clash with Israelis dies

Hebron: A Palestinian shot by Israeli soldiers during clashes last month died of his wounds today at a hospital in the West Bank, the hospital said.

Arif Jaradat, 22, was wounded during clashes with the Israeli armed forces on May 4 in his home village of Sair, in the south of the occupied West Bank.

He was transferred to the hospital in Hebron where he succumbed to his wounds.

Violence since October has killed at least 208 Palestinians, 32 Israelis, two Americans, an Eritrean and a Sudanese.

Most of the Palestinians were carrying out knife, gun or car-ramming attacks, Israeli authorities say.

Others were killed in clashes with security forces or by Israeli air strikes in the Gaza Strip.
