A Palestinian youth who was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers earlier on Wednesday in the village of Nabi Saleh, northwest of Ramallah, was identified as 21 years old Izzeddin Tamimi, according to the Ministry of Health. When Palestinian medics attempted to help him, the army prevented them and then took Tamimi away.

"The Israeli violations against the Palestinian people ring the bell of danger through campaigns of settlement expansion and seizing Palestinian lands", Saeed Abu Ali, AL assistant secretary general for the occupied Palestinian and Arab lands, said in a statement, Xinhua reported on Tuesday.

"The soldier responded by firing at the Palestinian, who was wounded and given medical treatment at the scene..."

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

"No IDF troops were injured", the spokesperson confirmed.

The UN and European Union have accused Israel of using excessive force, while rights groups say the open fire orders are illegal because soldiers are shooting toward unarmed people when their lives are not in imminent danger.

Eden Hazard: 'It's time for Belgium to win something'

The incident occurred in the same village where jailed Palestinian protester Ahed Tamimi comes from.

However, Hamas has since attempted to garner support for larger protests on Friday instead, for a demonstration dubbed the "March of a Million to Jerusalem".

Ahed Tamimi's case gained global 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.

Israeli military vehicles and bulldozers entered into agricultural Palestinian lands east Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip on Thursday morning, razing and leveling lands along the "buffer zone".

Israel says many protest participants were Hamas members and militants trying to breach the border and launch attacks.

The Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories have remained tense since last December, when U.S. President Donald Trump announced his decision to relocate the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
