Funeral held for Palestinian teen shot, martyred in Jerusalem al-Quds knife attack

Palestinians have held a funeral procession for a 14-year old boy, shot dead by Israeli forces after stabbing a policeman in Jerusalem al-Quds last month.

Nassim Abu Rumi, from al-Azariya, died on August 15, after he and another boy, attacked an Israeli policeman in the Old City of Jerusalem al-Quds . His body was kept by the Israeli authorities until they released it on Friday.

Video footage from the incident, aired on Israeli television and circulated on social media, showed two young males approaching a police officer at one of the walled Old City’s gates, drawing knives and stabbing him before his colleagues shoot them multiple times.

The attack came less than a week after Palestinians and Israeli police clashed at a nearby holy site of the city.
