Palestinian health officials say a Palestinian man was killed and 25 others were hurt today after dozens of angry Israeli settlers stormed into a village in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, shooting and setting houses and cars on fire.

Foreign Affairs Minister Mélanie Joly says the regional security situation remains highly volatile and could escalate without notice.
