Israeli army kills Palestinian youth in occupied West Bank

Ramallah: A Palestinian who threw a rock at Israeli troops in the occupied West Bank on Wednesday was shot dead by a soldier, the Israeli Army said in a statement.

Al-Najjar was shot dead by an Israeli sniper as she sought to reach and aid wounded protesters near the Gaza Strip perimeter fence.

However a senior Israel Defense Forces (IDF) officer, who declined to be named, said that many of his soldiers reported that their bullets hit one person and then continued in flight and hit another.

Palestinian medics said that at least 120 Palestinians have been killed since the start of the popular return marches on the borders between the Gaza Strip and Israel on March 30, with nearly daily clashes on the border.

Israel says many protest participants were members of Hamas, the dominant armed group in the Gaza Strip, and militants trying to breach the fenced frontier and launch attacks.

Ahed Tamimi's case gained worldwide attention when footage emerged of her slapping and kicking two Israeli soldiers next to her house in the West Bank in December, with the soldiers not responding to the provocation. The Hamas-led demonstrations have been fueled by despair over a decade-old Israel-Egyptian blockade, imposed after the Islamic militant group seized control of the territory. The marchers have also pressed demands for a "right of return" for the descendants of Palestinian refugees to ancestral homes in what is now Israel.

Over 120 Palestinians have been killed since the start of the protests.

"We need real Arab support and solidarity with our cause", said Saleh, a student of Arabic literature who wore a medical mask against the tear gas.

The officer noted that although the IDF has attempted to minimize casualties they have not found a better way to protect the border than the use of "minimal gunfire aimed towards the legs".

The march coincided with the annual "Jerusalem Day", instituted by Iran to protest Israeli rule of the holy city.
