An Israeli soldier has killed a Palestinian youth during a raid in the occupied West Bank village of Nabi Saleh.

According to the IDF, Tamimi managed to hit one of the soldiers in the head with a rock.

Palestinians said she repeatedly told the soldiers to leave her land, which is considered occupied under worldwide law.

The accusation against former IDF soldier, American-born 24-year-old Rebecca, spread quickly after "Freedom for Gaza" Facebook page shared an old picture of her claiming she had "executed a 21-year-old Palestinian nurse in Gaza", Times of Israel reported. The spokesman said that he was "given medical treatment at the scene", but did not survive.

The spokesperson added that no soldiers were injured in the incident.

A video of the aftermath of the incident was provided by Mohammad Attalah Tamimi (Warning: graphic footage).

Bilal Tamimi, a resident of Nabi Saleh, told MEE that many in the village believed Ezz al-Din's killing was "on purpose", as the Israeli army had tried to detain the young man for months over his participation in demonstrations and allegations of stone-throwing.

Izzideen, Wednesday's casualty, is a distant relative of Palestinian teenage protest icon Ahed Tamimi. The 17-year-old Ahed has drawn worldwide attention for her arrest after slapping an Israeli soldier in the face in December. The Palestinians say most of the dead and the thousands who have been wounded were unarmed civilians.

"Razan al-Najjar was not an angel of mercy as Hamas' propaganda is trying to portray her", Maj.

The Palestinian Medical Relief Society said Najjar was shot "as she was attempting to provide first aid to an injured protester", with three other first responders also hit by live fire on Friday. Israel says it has a right to defend itself from violent rioters, who want to cross the border fence.
