A Palestinian teen jailed for slapping an Israeli soldier near her home in the occupied West Bank lost an appeal on Wednesday for her early release, her supporters said.

Village residents told Middle East Eye (MEE) that Israeli soldiers had previously threatened to kill the young man.

The Palestinian Information Ministry said Israeli forces had killed Ezz El-Deen al-Tamimi, 21, in "cold blood". 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. Avichay Adraee, the Arabic-language spokesperson for the IDF, tweeted on Thursday.

Izzideen Tamimi was killed after allegedly throwing a stone that hit the head of an Israeli soldier in the village of Nabi Saleh, near Ramallah. Other soldiers at the scene treated Tamimi for his wounds and later declared his death.

The 'trend' that is troubling the US
If you or someone you love needs help, the National Suicide Prevention hotline is 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or text "talk" to 741741. Between 1999 and 2016, suicide rates in these states, along with Vermont, New Hampshire and SC , rose 38 percent to 58 percent.

Video live-streamed by a resident of Nabi Saleh showed a pool of blood where Tamimi had been shot, as well as almost a dozen Israeli soldiers crowding around the unresponsive young man apparently attempting to place him on a stretcher as Palestinians beseeched them to take Tamimi to a hospital for treatment.

The Israeli army frequently carries out sweeping arrest campaigns across the occupied West Bank on the pretext of searching for "wanted" Palestinians. The military said it was still examining Wednesday's incident, and did not mention who it had sought to arrest or if the action was completed.

Since late March, the Israeli forces killed at least 120 Palestinians and wounded thousands during protests calling for the Palestinian refugees' right of return and ending the Israeli blockade imposed on the Gaza Strip since Islamic Hamas movement seized control of the enclave in 2007.

In January, another member of the Tamimi family, 16-year-old Musaab, died in the nearby village of Deir Nidham after also being shot by Israeli forces in the neck.
