Palestinian officials say 15 residents have been injured in overnight clashes with Israeli police in east Jerusalem.

It was the third consecutive night of violence in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Issawiya following the shooting death of a Palestinian man late Thursday.

Israeli police say 20-year-old Mohammed Obeid had hurled fireworks at officers and presented a lethal threat when he was shot. But residents accuse police of using excessive force and shooting Obeid from a very short distance.
