Israeli forces shot dead a Palestinian worker on Saturday who was attempting to cross into Israel, Israeli medical sources said.

Uday Kamil Muhammad Darwish, 21, was attempting to cross the border in an area south of Hebron when he spotted an Israeli military patrol and began to run away.

Darwish, from Dura, worked in Israel but did not have a permit.

He was shot in the back by Israeli soldiers and evacuated to Soroka Medical Center in Beersheba, Israeli medical sources said.

Initial reports said that Darwish was injured after falling over while trying to escape.

Israeli sources said that the army has opened an investigation into the incident.
