Israeli forces kill 21-year-old Ezzaddin Tamimi in Nabi Saleh

An IDF soldier shot and killed Palestinian teenager Izz ad-Din Tamimi, 21, during riots in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh Wednesday morning, after being hit in the head with a big rock by the protester, according to the IDF Spokesperson's Unit.

The soldier then immediately responded to the assault by firing at the Palestinian.

A Hamas official has said that its members accounted for 50 of the 60 Palestinians killed by Israeli fire on May 14, when the largest protests and clashes took place.

The Palestinian Health Ministry identified the victim as Izza Abdul-Hafiz al-Tamimi, adding that Israeli forces had directly fired three bullets at him.

It said the troops were on a search and arrest operation in the village of Nabi Saleh, northwest of Ramallah, when they were attacked by at least 10 stone-throwing Palestinians who hit one soldier on the head. "He was treated at the scene and he was later declared dead. The incident will be investigated".

Thousands of Palestinians are to join on Friday afternoon the anti-Israel rallies and protests organized by the Highest Commission for the Great March of Return in eastern Gaza Strip, close to the border with Israel.

The mass protests have been aimed at a border blockade imposed by Israel and Egypt in 2007, after the Islamic militant group Hamas overran the territory.

The subcommittee's focus was on what it described as "the Palestinian Authority's strategic takeover of land in Area C", the roughly 60 per cent of the West Bank where the majority of illegal Israeli settlements are located, and where Palestinian structures are routinely demolished.

Israel captured east Jerusalem in the 1967 Mideast war and annexed it to its capital, a move not recognized by most of the global community.

Many Palestinians tried to provide aid to the seriously wounded man, but the soldiers assaulted them, and threatened to shoot them. US -brokered peace talks collapsed in 2014.
