Israeli troops shoot dead relative of Ahed Tamimi

Israeli troops shot dead a 21 year-old Palestinian stone-thrower during an arrest raid in the West Bank Wednesday after a soldier was hit in the head with a rock, the Israeli military and Palestinian Health Ministry said.

Tamimi was shot and critically injured when soldiers opened fire at him during clashes at the village.

The village gained further prominence after the arrests of 17-year-old Ahed Tamimi and her mother, Nariman, who were sentenced to eight months in Israeli prison after Ahed slapped an Israeli soldier and her mother filmed and shared the incident.

It was not immediately clear whether Tamimi died at the scene or after the soldiers took him away in an armoured vehicle.

Palestinians said Tamimi was shot from a close range by three bullets, one of them hit him in the neck. None of our troops were hurt.

The United Nations Human Rights Commission also voted to establish a war crimes probe into the deaths of demonstrators, with only the United States and Australia voting against it. Israel blasted the move as ignoring what it says is Hamas' role in the violence and said it won't co-operate with investigators. Palestinians want East Jerusalem for their future capital.

The Israeli military controls most of the territory of the West Bank, protecting 400,000 Jewish settlers who now live there among around 3 million Palestinians.

Demonstrators also chanted anti-American slogans to condemn the US decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem.

Since late April thousands of Palestinians have been taking part in protests along the Gaza-Israel border that quickly turned violent, calling for the right to return to their ancestral homelands in what is now Israel.

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.

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