Israeli Army Kills Palestinian Youth in Occupied West Bank

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

Ezzadin Tamimi was shot dead when troops came to arrest him over alleged stone throwing, the Maan News Agency said on Wednesday.

The soldier struck the 21-year-old with three bullets to the neck from a distance of around 45 meters, according to Palestinian activists.

Eyewitnesses said paramedics were prevented from treating Tamimi as he bled out from his wounds.

Video shared on YouTube by residents of the village shows the young man wounded on the ground.

The Israeli army said one of its soldiers was hit by a rock while conducting the arrest and responded by shooting.
