Palestinians bid last farewell to 3 slain anti-occupation youths
Hundreds of Palestinian mourners carried on Tuesday the bodies of Mansour al-Shawamrah, 20, and Omar Amr, 20, during their joint funeral in al-Qubeiba village, in northern Occupied Jerusalem. Both Palestinians were shot and killed by the Israeli occupation police on February 14 after they carried out an anti-occupation attack in Bab al-Amoud area, in Occupied Jerusalem. The Israeli occupation soldiers cracked down on the Palestinian mourners during the funeral procession, sparking violent clashes.
Several mourners were left wounded after the occupation troops discharged heavy spates of rubber bullets and teargas canisters. The Israeli occupation authorities have been withholding the bodies of 10 slain Palestinians from Occupied Jerusalem. Another funeral was held in Bethlehem city for the slain anti-occupation youth Khaled Taqatqa, 22.
Thousands marched in the funeral procession, carrying Taqatqa’s body from the Beit Jala public hospital to his family home in Beit Fajjar, where his parents, friends, and relatives bid him last farewell. Taqatqa was killed on Friday in clashes with the Israeli occupation soldiers near Beit Fajjar’s western entrance.
