A Palestinian woman died of a gunshot wound yesterday after being shot near the site of clashes between Palestinian youths and Israeli troops in the occupied West Bank, Palestinian officials said.
 “Dalia Ahmed Suleiman Samudi, 23, died of serious injuries sustained by bullets from the occupation forces,” the Palestinian health ministry said in a statement, using the term used by Palestinian officials to refer to the Israeli army. 
Palestinian security sources, said that clashes between young Palestinian men and Israeli forces erupted overnight from Thursday to yesterday near the city of Jenin, in the north of the West Bank.
 An Israeli army spokesman said he had no knowledge of a woman being shot but confirmed the clashes.  He said that a “routine” operation in Jenin turned into a “riot” in which young Palestinian fighters shot at soldiers, and threw stones and explosive devices at them.  He said that the troops responded with unspecified “riot dispersal means”.
 The Palestinian health ministry said Samudi was in her home when she was hit by a live round which wounded her in the liver. She was rushed to a local hospital where she died in intensive care yesterday, it said.
