TEL AVIV — Israeli troops shot and wounded a Palestinian man in the occupied West Bank on Saturday after he refused to take down a Palestine Liberation Organization flag and then tried to run away, an army spokesman said.

He said the Palestinian, from the Balata refugee camp, was taken to a hospital in the nearby city of Nablus with a leg wound. Palestinian sources identified him as Mohammed Khaled Shubash, 23, a Balata shopowner.
