Thousands of Palestinian mourners on Saturday filled the streets of Hebron for the joint funeral of five Palestinians killed by Israeli forces after alleged and actual attacks in the occupied West Bank city this month.
The bodies of Dania Irsheid al-Husseini, 17, Bayan Ayman al-Essili, 16, Tariq Ziyad al-Natsha,16, Hussam Ismail al-Jabari,17, and Bashar Nidal al-Jabari,15, were handed over by Israel Friday night.
All were involved in attacks that the Israeli army said resulted in injury of Israeli military personnel excluding Dania, who eyewitnesses said did not attempt an attack.
The funeral procession left from al-Hussein Ibn Ali Mosque in Ein Saraha neighborhood after funeral prayers.
Participants waved Palestinian flags and shouted slogans urging Palestinian factions to unite in order to carry out reprisal attacks against the Israeli military and settlers.
The father of 17-year-old Dania Irsheid al-Husseini collapsed during the funeral, locals said.
Several Palestinian Authority officials attended the funeral including Hebron governor Kamil Hmeid, chairman of the PA Committee Against the Wall and Settlements, Walid Assaf , and Secretary-General of the Palestinian National Initiative party, Mustafa Barghouthi.
According to Israeli media, the Israeli military issued a warning to security personnel beforehand to “ expect violent clashes after the conclusion of services.”
