The settlers then entrenched themselves in a cave near the village and Israeli forces soon evacuated them, according to occupation authorities' account.

The conflict reportedly began as some Palestinians threw stones at a group of Israeli settlers-school children accompanied by two armed adults-on a field trip in the northeastern part of the West Bank.

The military said that a medical team rushed to the scene to offer medical care to the Palestinian.

Unconfirmed Palestinian sources said the man who was shot was 48-year-old farmer Mahmoud Udah, who was declared dead following the shooting.
