HEBRON, WEST BANK (CNN) – The funeral of a 19-year-old Palestinian man who was shot and killed in the West Bank was held on Monday.

Munir Ahmad Badareen was shot and killed in the West Bank by Israeli fire during clashes in al-Samou south of Hebron before dawn on Monday, Palestinian officials told CNN.

His friends say that as they tried to help Badareen, they were fired at and couldn’t get close.

According to an initial investigation by the Israeli military, they report that three masked Palestinians were hurling rocks and firebombs at Israeli civilian vehicles.

Israeli soldiers who were conducting routine security activity in the area used lived fire and hit one of the instigators.
