Nabi Saleh is also home to many members of the Tamimi clan, the most famous of which is Ahed Tamimi, 17, who was arrested a year ago after she slapped a soldier who stood outside her home barring people from entering.

The IDF confirmed that soldiers were indeed firing - but not at the terror-supporting volunteer nurse as she was tending to injured Gazans who were attempting to damage the security fence east of Khan Younis.

Israeli soldiers had entered the village to arrest a suspect, when a group of over ten Palestinians threw stones at the soldiers who responded with riot dispersal methods.

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.

Pollak is involved with Free the Tamimis, a campaign in support of Nabi Saleh and its residents.

Israeli forces closed all the streets inside of the village and streets connecting to other villages and towns nearby, as Israeli planes circled overhead.
