Israel army troops on Saturday evening shot dead a 19-year-old Palestinian man from the West Bank city of Ramallah, Palestinian sources reported.
Israeli military source claimed the man was trying to plan a roadside bomb.
According to source, reserve infantry soldiers spotted two Palestinians placing a suspicious bag on the road leading to the nearby the settlement of Neveh Tzuf. The troops, suspecting the bag contained a bomb, then opened fire on the Palestinians, killing Abdullah Yahia, 18, from the village of Deir Netham, near Ramallah.
The army admitted later that they found out that the bag did not contain any kind of explosives or weapons.
The other, Abdullah Yacoub, 20, was injured before the soldiers arrested him.
