"During an initial examination.it was found that a small number of bullets were fired during the incident, and that no shots were deliberately or directly aimed towards her", the IDF statement read, referring to Razan Najjar, who was shot dead while providing aid to other wounded Palestinians in last Friday's demonstrations.

The accusation against former IDF soldier, American-born 24-year-old Rebecca, spread quickly after "Freedom for Gaza" Facebook page shared an old picture of her claiming she had "executed a 21-year-old Palestinian nurse in Gaza", Times of Israel reported.

The IDF spokesperson explained that troops "responded with riot dispersal means".

According to the IDF, Tamimi managed to hit one of the soldiers in the head with a rock.

Palestinians said she repeatedly told the soldiers to leave her land, which is considered occupied under global law. The spokesman said that he was "given medical treatment at the scene", but did not survive.

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

Bilal Tamimi, a resident of Nabi Saleh, told MEE that many in the village believed Ezz al-Din's killing was "on purpose", as the Israeli army had tried to detain the young man for months over his participation in demonstrations and allegations of stone-throwing.

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

"The incident will be investigated", the military said. At least three other medical workers were wounded on the same day.

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.
