Palestinian shot dead after throwing rock at Israeli soldier: Army

Military police opened an investigation Thursday into the fatal shooting of a Palestinian who was killed by soldiers the day before in the West Bank village of Nebi Saleh, the IDF said in a statement.

The soldier struck by the rock then fired at the Palestinian who threw it, who was given medical treatment but later died, the military said in a statement.

Nabi Saleh is also home to many members of the Tamimi clan, the most famous of which is Ahed Tamimi, 17, who was arrested past year after she slapped a soldier who stood outside her home barring people from entering.

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

Yet the 21-year-old volunteer medic was shot in the back while trying to reach wounded protesters. Other soldiers at the scene treated Tamimi for his wounds and later declared his death.

Video live-streamed by a resident of Nabi Saleh showed a pool of blood where Tamimi had been shot, as well as almost a dozen Israeli soldiers crowding around the unresponsive young man apparently attempting to place him on a stretcher as Palestinians beseeched them to take Tamimi to a hospital for treatment.

Tamimi's body was later taken to a hospital in the nearby city of Ramallah, from which a funeral procession departed on Wednesday afternoon.

One of the residents in the village who witnessed the incident told Haaretz that Tamimi had been wanted by Israeli security forces and they entered the village to arrest him.

Israeli forces regularly carry out night raids in Palestinian-administered parts of the West Bank to arrest suspects they accuse of militant activities against Israel.

Colonel Uri Mendes, deputy head of the Civil Administration - the Israeli military body in charge of the day to day management of the occupation - made the remarks on Sunday in a meeting of the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defence Committee's Subcommittee for the occupied West Bank.
