On Saturday, thousands of Palestinians attended the funeral of 21-year-old Najjar, who was shot dead by an Israeli sniper while trying to save the lives of those wounded by Israeli military after recent protests near the eastern border of Khan Younis, on the southern Gaza strip.

After initially responding with riot-dispersal means, the military said one of the Palestinians approached from a side position and hurled a large rock that struck one of the soldiers in the head.

The soldiers also shot another Palestinian with a live round and caused many others to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation, during protests that took place after the soldiers killed Tamimi.

Palestinians said she repeatedly told the soldiers to leave her land, which is considered occupied under worldwide law.

Israeli forces killed over 260 Palestinians in that period. most of whom Israel says were attackers. "The incident will be investigated".

Nabi Saleh has always been in the spotlight for its demonstrations against Israeli policies in the occupied Palestinian territory, and as a result has been under heightened pressure by Israeli forces, who regularly carry out raids in the area.
