Police fired tear gas on protesters in the West Bank on Saturday in response to a protest march calling for the release of Palestinian detainees.
The protest was organized by the Palestinian Association for Human Rights (PAAHR), which has called for the immediate release of four Israeli men held in the Jordan Valley jail in Ramallah.
The four men, who were arrested last month, are being held in administrative detention.
PAAHR also wants to see their families freed.
The PAAHLH said it was the first time since October that demonstrators had resorted to violence against Israeli police.
In response to the violence, the police used stun grenades and tear gas to disperse protesters who had gathered at the junction of Beit Fajjar and Arif villages in the northern West Bank.
Police fired at protesters and injured several others.PAAHLI said the protesters had blocked the road and assaulted a group of officers who responded with tear gas.
The group then set fire to a car, a truck and a building in the village, according to the group.
Several protesters were injured during the clashes, including a 21-year-old Palestinian man who was taken to the Jerusalem hospital for treatment.
The Palestinian Authority’s Information and Communications Technology Ministry confirmed the death of a protester.
The ministry said in a statement that it had arrested two Palestinians in connection with the protests.
In the past, demonstrations have been held on the occasion of the arrest of Palestinian protesters in East Jerusalem, which has seen a wave of anti-Israeli demonstrations.
The demonstrations have resulted in dozens of injuries and arrests.
