Israeli soldiers shot dead a Palestinian Tuesday during clashes in the Silwan area of east Jerusalem, Palestinian officials said.
Ali Shiouki, 20, was killed as security services and the Israeli army were deployed in force across the occupied West Bank and east Jerusalem to prevent attacks during the solemn Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur, the officials said.
Israel didn't allow Palestinians to enter to the occupied West Bank or the Gaza Strip ahead of the solemn Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur that began Tuesday evening.
Thousands of Jews visit the Western Wall in east Jerusalem's Old City around Yom Kippur, or Day of Atonement, which ends on Wednesday evening.
The same measures were taken for last week's Rosh Hashanah holiday and will be imposed again for next week's Sukkot festival.
