NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian man was shot dead by Israeli security officials outside Nablus on Monday morning, witnesses said.

Witnesses identified the dead man as Hatem Shadid of the nearby village of Illar. His vehicle collided with an Israeli jeep near the northern West Bank village of Beit Lid, they told Ma'an.

Israeli officials said Shadid's car collided with a vehicle carrying agents of the Israeli internal security service, the Shin Bet.

The Israeli vehicle overturned, and two passengers were wounded in the incident, they said.

Witnesses quoted by Reuters said Shadid then approached the Israelis, who were already injured from the crash, hitting one in the head and the other in the shoulder with an object that he was carrying. Israeli officials said it was an axe.

One of the Israelis then shot him dead, both sides said.

A Ma'an correspondent said the area was declared a closed military zone and Palestinian medics had been unable to reach the site.

Shadid's brother Khaled said he had not received any official notification of the death. He said Shadid was a 35-year-old construction worker with five children.

"Israeli officials said it was an axe." LOLLLLLLL more izraeli LIES!!!! if it was an axe, and he hit a person IN THE HEAD WITH IT....that person's head would have been cleaved. izrael never stops their hysterical, pathological lying. the truth is most likely that izrael murdered another innocent Palestinian, that's far more believable than anything else.

Why is Ma'an reporting the Israeli lies and not interviewing other witnesses, if there are any? Why not ask his family, is he the type of guy who'd attack an injured person, and is he suicidal to do something like attack Israeli agents?? Come on Ma'an.. we can hear the Israeli side of the story everywhere else; can't you give us the Palestinian side?

According to Eyewitnesses: the traffic accident occurred near Deir Sharaf village west of Nablus between an IOF jeep and a Palestinian car. They said that the passengers in the civilian car tried to help the soldiers out of their jeep that turned turtle but when the soldiers got out one of them fired at the driver of the Palestinian car killing him instantly.

It's not the first time i notice that you, Ma'an News, report biased news. I even check if i am really reading on Ma'an because i start doubting what i read. How did this happen? What are your sources? I see under this article: Reuters contributed...do you check news from other sources, relatives etc? Or do you just copy from others without doing your journalist task: checking and double checking. I can't rely anymore on Al Jazeera English. I counted on you....not anymore.

"He said Shadid was a 35-year-old construction worker..." What did he build with an axe?! Log cabins?! Israelis don't even try to sound believable anymore.
