Palestinians to join anti-Israel protests in eastern Gaza

Female Palestinian medic Razan Al Najar reacts to tear gas as she works at the scene of clashes at Israel Gaza border in the southern Gaza Strip

A Palestinian who threw a rock at Israeli troops in the occupied West Bank was shot dead by a soldier Wednesday, the Israeli army said.

Clashes erupted after Israeli troops stormed a number of houses there.

"The soldier hit by the rock opened fire on the Palestinian who was (then) injured and received medical treatment on the spot".

The Palestinian Information Ministry said Israeli forces had killed Ezz El-Deen al-Tamimi, 21, in "cold blood".

Israeli military aircraft on Thursday dropped leaflets across the blockaded Gaza Strip warning Palestinians not to take part in planned Friday demonstrations.

The Palestinian Information Ministry, in a statement, said: "The execution of Tamimi in cold blood, with three bullets at close range, proves how much our people are in need of worldwide protection against the Israeli war machine". Under interim peace accords, Palestinians exercise limited self-rule in the area, which they seek, along with the Gaza Strip, for a future state with East Jerusalem as its capital. At least 115 Palestinian protesters, the vast majority unarmed, have been killed and close to 3,800 have been wounded by Israeli army fire since the marches began in late March.

Israel Defense Forces investigators say initial findings show that 22-year-old Gazan nurse Razan Ashraf Najjar was not deliberately targeted but rather was inadvertently hit by gunfire during violence at the Gaza-Israel border last week.

Many Palestinians tried to provide aid to the seriously wounded man, but the soldiers assaulted them, and threatened to shoot them.

Tensions were further heightened last month after the US moved its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in a step seen by both Israel and the Palestinians as siding with Israel on the most sensitive issue in the conflict.
