Israeli army kills Palestinian youth in occupied West Bank

A relative of a Palestinian, who was killed by Israeli troops, reacts at a hospital in Ramallah, in the occupied West Bank June 6, 2018.

The IDF said it's investigating this latest incident, in which Izz ad-Din Tamimi was killed, but it's far from the first case of Palestinians being shot. The number of demonstrators is expected to increase later on the afternoon.

Israeli police detained a Palestinian after breaking into and ransacking his family home in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of al-Issawiya.

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

Residents of the Palestinian village often hold protests against Israel that end in violent clashes with the IDF. Two-thirds of the two million Palestinians in Gaza are refugees or their descendants.

She said it would be some time before precise losses were confirmed. "I wish I could just find out if I have a house". Some chose to stay in the area, which now has no power, cell reception, landlines or county water, officials said.

Israel has drawn global condemnation for its use of deadly force during the mass demonstrations. But the vast majority of Palestinian casualties, including over 3,700 people wounded by Israeli fire, have been unarmed.

In a statement on Twitter, the head of Human Rights Watch in Israel warned troops could have used unnecessary force.

In the leaflets, the army told Gazans that approaching the border fence is liable to be "severely detrimental". Tens of thousands of Palestinians have participated in the protests.

Jerusalem day was established in 1979 in Iran to coincide with the last Friday of Ramadan. This year, the protests take on added significance after the United States recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. In recent weeks, Israel has struggled with a new phenomenon of flaming kites flown over the border into Israel. The kites have caused wildfires and extensive damage to Israeli agricultural land nearby. "In addition, the incident will be examined by the General Staff Fact Finding Assessment Mechanism, and the findings passed to the Military Advocate General", for a separate determination on whether criminal proceedings should be initiated, he added.
