Hundreds attend funeral of Palestinian teen shot dead by zionist Israeli soldier

Hundreds of mourners gather in the occupied West Bank for the funeral of a 15-year-old Palestinian boy shot by an Israeli soldier.

Ali Abu Alia had been at a protest against Israeli settlements at al-Mughayyir village near Ramallah, where stones were thrown at Israeli soldiers.

He was hit by a bullet in the abdomen and taken to hospital in Ramallah, where he died. The Israeli military denied using live ammunition, only rubber bullets.

The United Nations Middle East envoy, Nickolay Mladenov, said he was appalled by the killing.

“Israel must swiftly and independently investigate this shocking and unacceptable incident,” he tweeted.
