Israeli soldiers shot and killed a 21-year-old Palestinian at close range on Wednesday morning in the occupied West Bank village of Nabi Saleh.

Shooting medics is a bit more embarrassing, particularly a photogenic medic like Najjar who was in a lot of media coverage of paramedics risking their lives to treat wounded protesters. Others threw stones or flew kites with burning rags attached, aiming to send them over the border and set Israeli fields on fire.
The mass protests have been aimed at a border blockade imposed by Israel and Egypt in 2007, after the Islamic militant group Hamas overran the territory. "We need real Arab support and solidarity with our cause", said Saleh, a student of Arabic literature who wore a medical mask against the tear gas.
