Palestinian shot dead after throwing rock at Israeli soldier: army

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

Tamimi was later arrested and eventually accepted a plea bargain in which she was sentenced to an eight-month prison term due to end in mid-July.

Israeli soldiers had entered the village to arrest a suspect, when a group of over ten Palestinians threw stones at the soldiers who responded with riot dispersal methods.

There was no immediate confirmation of the decision from the Israeli side.

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 global protection against the Israeli war machine".

The IDF has released a video showing Razan al-Najjar, the Palestinian nurse allegedly killed by Israeli sniper fire on the Gaza border, throwing a gas grenade and acknowledging her role as a human shield for Hamas terrorists.

Witness accounts said Ms. Najjar was shot two or three times in the upper body by Israeli soldiers positioned across the fence as she was seeking to aid an injured protester, about an hour before dusk on Friday.

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. Rights groups have said Israel's open-fire rules are unlawful. Hamas leaders have threatened possible mass border breaches, raising concern in Israel that communities near Gaza might be at risk. Growing despair in Gaza over blockade-linked hardships, including daily power cuts and rising poverty, have driven turnout. US -brokered peace talks collapsed in 2014.

Chanting "Death to Israel", demonstrators protested Israel's occupation of Jerusalem, the city where Muslims believe Islam's Prophet Muhammad began his journey to heaven. The compound sits on the ruins of biblical temples and is revered by Jews as the holiest site of their religion. This year, the protests take on added significance after the USA recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
