GAZA, April 16 (Reuters) - A Palestinian man was killed in an exchange of fire with Israeli soldiers near the Gaza Strip's border with the Jewish state, the Israeli army and Palestinian medical workers said on Friday.

An army spokesman said soldiers opened fire on a Palestinian gunman who approached the border fence near Nahal Oz in the northern part of the enclave and threw a hand grenade at them.

Palestinian medics said they recovered a dismembered body from the area after local residents reported Israeli army fire. The identity of the man was not immediately known.
Israeli soldiers and Palestinian gunmen clash frequently along the Israel-Gaza frontier.

In the occupied West Bank, two Palestinian cars were torched overnight on Thursday by assailants who also sprayed a Star of David sign and the words Price Tag on a village wall.

This is the phrase used by militant Jewish settlers to warn that they will exact a price for any actions they perceive to be against their presence in what they consider Biblical Israel.

Israeli police opened an investigation. A resident of the village said she saw two people driving away from the scene, but could not tell whether they were settlers.

Palestinians say settlers were behind the vandalism of a mosque in another West Bank village earlier this week.
Some 500,000 Jewish settlers live in the West Bank and areas near Jerusalem annexed by Israel.
