Israeli army kills Palestinian in West Bank during raid

While the investigation into the killing of 21-year-old Palestinian nurse Razan Najjar by Israeli troops last week continues, the military has already offered a brief preliminary statement Tuesday, saying that no shots were "deliberately or directly aimed towards her".

The Israeli military said Palestinian militants had attacked its troops along the border with gunfire and a grenade.

The Palestinian Information Ministry said in a statement that "the execution of Tamimi in cold blood, with three bullets at close range, proves how much our people are in need of global protection against the Israeli war machine".

In a statement, the military said more than 10 Palestinians tried to disrupt a force carrying out arrests in the village of Nabi Saleh and that one of them threw a rock at a soldier, striking him in the head.
