Israeli occupation soldiers arrested Yussef Derieh, an ambulance driver from the village of Aqraba, near the main northern West Bank city of Nablus, who veered his vehicle to the opposite lane and blocked the settler's auto.

On Thursday, the armed wings of seven Palestinian factions, including Hamas movement, which rules the Gaza Strip, called for a day of confrontation with Israel in support of Palestinian prisoners who have been going on a hunger strike in Israeli jails for 33 days.

Dozens of people were injured after protests in support of Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike turned violent Friday, with protesters igniting tires and hurling rocks at security forces, who responded with tear gas, grenades and life fire.

Palestinian medical officials say a 20-year-old man was fatally shot in the head, while AP photographer Majdi Mohammed was shot in the hand.

A Palestinian was seriously hurt and another 9 were slightly injured in clashes near Gaza's border.

Police said they were also investigating an arson attack in another nearby Palestinian village that appeared to have been carried out by Jewish extremists.

A Palestinian was shot dead and a journalist wounded during a protest march after they were shot by an Israeli settler after his vehicle was stoned near Nablus in the northern West Bank.

When the settler drove through the crowd, protesters began beating the vehicle and throwing rocks at it. Two of the injured have been in serious condition.

The hunger strike being waged by some 1,300 Palestinians being held in Israeli jails picked up an additional 220 strikers on Sunday, day 35 of the protest.

The committee also urged media outlets to "remain cautious" when dealing with information on negotiations between prisoners and Israeli authorities. Ultimately; the Israeli occupation of the West Bank remains the main obstacle to any Palestinian economic growth; as losses continue to accumulate by preventing Palestinians from accessing their natural resources, control of the border, hampering internal and external trade, destroying infrastructure and frustrates development attempts in area classified as "C" (61% of the West Bank total area).

They said that dozens of Israeli soldiers fired smoke bombs and tear gas canisters to disperse the demonstrators, adding that the demonstrators threw stones at the soldiers, who opened fire and wounded eight of them.
