Hundreds of Palestinian mourners marched on Saturday in the funeral of Hamzeh Youssef Zamaareh, 19, in the town of Halhul, north of Hebron in the southern occupied West Bank.
His body was returned to his family late Friday.
Residents of Halhul participated in a general strike in mourning for Zamaareh upon calls by the national and Islamic factions in the town.
Israeli forces have been widely condemned by rights groups for what have been deemed “extrajudicial killings,” in situations where alleged assailants could have been detained in a non-lethal manner.
