On Sunday, a Palestinian was killed by Israeli soldiers when he tried to cross the security fence between the northern West Bank city of Qaliqlya and Israel.
The Palestinian liaison office reported that Nabil Ghanim was killed after Israeli soldiers shot him near the security fence close to the city.

The Israeli government practices "murder and violence against the Palestinians, including workers, to win votes in any upcoming elections," he condemned, adding that the union will follow up all attacks against workers in all international forums.
The worker's killing came two days after three Palestinian men were killed by Israeli soldiers in the northern West Bank city of Jenin. Tensions between Israel and the Palestinians have been flaring recently, as the Israeli army launched repeated incursions into the West Bank.
On Saturday, Israeli fighter jets bombed military facilities belonging to the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) in the Gaza Strip, in response to a rocket firing at southern Israel.
