The Palestinian Health Ministry says a man was killed in clashes with Israeli forces in the northern West Bank .

It said the 24-year-old died Monday after sustaining serious head wounds near Qalqiliya.

Israel's military said dozens of Palestinians hurled rocks at soldiers during a "violent riot" and that troops used "live rounds."

His death raises to 17 the number of Palestinians killed in violence along the Gaza border and in the West Bank since President Donald Trump 's Dec. 6 recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
