A second was shot by a settler on Thursday after his vehicle was pummeled by rocks and projectiles driving through a large demonstration near Harawa, claiming he was "about to be lynched" by the Palestinian protesters.

They also detained a second Palestinian and seized the ambulance and a bus used to transport some of the protesters, military officials said.

Following the fatal shooting, the Israeli assailants' auto struck an ambulance, and rammed three Palestinians, causing mild wounds.

Muataz Bani Shemsay, 23, was killed after being shot in the head by the settler, and an Associated Press news agency photographer wounded before occupation forces arrived and dispersed the Palestinians.

Pax Christi International, together with its member organisations and partners, is deeply concerned about the situation of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli prisons - especially those who have been on a hunger strike for one month and whose situation is deteriorating. Their health is in danger and they are being subjected to violent and coercive measures and policies by the Israeli Prison Service and special units, attempting to push the prisoners to end their hunger strike.

In December, the Israeli government lashed out over a UN Security Council resolution that condemned Israeli settlement building in the Palestinian Territories and called on Israel to stop immediately.

The so-called "Freedom and Dignity" strike, orchestrated by imprisoned Fatah member Marwan Barghouti, has sparked a number of demonstrations across the West Bank since it began on April 17.

The prisoners, jailed for offenses linked to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, seek better conditions, including 20 TV channels, unrestricted books and magazines, air conditioning, a greater selection of items available for purchase in the canteen, family visits, the restarting of open university studies, public telephone use, and annual medical checks for prisoners.
