An IDF soldier fatally shot Izz ad-Din Tamimi, 21, during a violent clash in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh on Wednesday.







Soldiers had entered the village to arrest a suspect, according to the IDF. A group of more than 10 Palestinians threw stones at them and the army responded with riot dispersal methods.

According to the army, Tamimi threw a stone that hit a solider in the head. That soldier responded by firing at Tamimi, who was then treated medically at the scene before being declared dead.


Nabi Saleh is located across the road from the Halamish settlement in the Binyamin region.

Residents often hold protests against Israel that end in violent clashes with the IDF.

The village is also home to many members of the Tamimi clan, the most famous of whom is Ahed Tamimi, 17, who was arrested last year after she slapped a soldier who was standing outside her home and barring people from entering.

A video of her slapping the soldier was one several recordings in which she can be seen accosting soldiers in Nabi Saleh.

Separately in West Bank raids overnight, security forces including the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency), the Border Police and the Israel Police arrested seven Palestinians who are suspected of terrorism.
