A Palestinian man was killed and three others were injured in a clash between Israeli forces and Palestinians in Jerusalem’s Old City, the police said.

The Palestinian injured in the incident was identified as a 20-year-old named Khaled al-Zahabi, the statement said.

Two other Palestinians were wounded in the confrontation.

The man was taken to the Beit El hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries, the Shin Bet said.

It was not immediately clear how he was wounded.

In the afternoon, two other Palestinians sustained injuries in the clashes.

A third was lightly wounded.

The clashes began when protesters blocked the road to the al-Aqsa mosque compound in the Old City on Thursday evening, the Jerusalem Police said.

The protesters then proceeded to block the main road to al-Masjid al-Sharif, which is also a religious site, and set fire to cars, a vehicle, a truck, a bulldozer, a car-sized building and an armored vehicle, the army said.

Several Palestinians were injured and taken to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, where they were treated for their injuries, according to the statement.

The two injured Palestinians were identified as Muhammad Abu al-Khader and Mohammed Nasser, it said.

Another protester was lightly injured in clashes at the Al-Ajsa Mosque compound on Thursday night.

A woman was lightly hurt in the same incident.

The clashes were sparked after a Palestinian car drove through a crowd of protesters, striking and injuring several people, the IDF said.

A man was lightly and seriously wounded in an incident near the Al Aqsa Mosque, it added.

A Palestinian man is killed and four others are wounded in clashes with Israeli troops in Jerusalem on Wednesday, March 12, 2018.

The Israeli army responded by firing tear gas and rubber-coated steel bullets at protesters near the al Aqsah Mosque compound in Jerusalem.

The demonstrators set fire at Israeli forces.

A number of Israeli soldiers were lightly wounded, the military said.

No injuries were reported in the protests.

The protests have become increasingly violent in recent weeks, with Israeli forces using tear gas, rubber-bombs and stun grenades to disperse the demonstrators.

A total of 13 Palestinians have been killed in Israeli-Palestinian clashes since October, according the Palestinian Center for Human Rights.
