Israeli forces attack Palestinian teenager funeral
On Monday, at least 50 Palestinian mourners were injured in clashes between Israeli forces and Palestinians near East al–Quds (Jerusalem). The Israeli forces fired rubber bullets and tear gas at the mourners.
On Sunday, Mohammed Sinokrot died from injuries after being shot by Israeli forces in the city’s Wadi al-Joz neighborhood on August 31.
Following the news of his death, clashes broke out between Palestinians and Israelis in several areas of the occupied city, including Wadi al-Joz, the Issawiya and At-Tur.
Israeli forces fired tear gas, rubber bullets, and live rounds at Palestinian protesters in the districts.
The protesters threw stones and firecrackers at the Israeli soldiers.
The 16-year-old Palestinian is said to have been shot in the head on his way to a mosque.
The clashes in the area occurred two weeks after a ceasefire ended a 50-day Israeli onslaught on the besieged Gaza Strip.
The Israeli war ended on August 26 by an Egyptian-brokered truce, which took effect after negotiations in Cairo. The deal stipulates the ease of Israel’s seven-year-old blockade as well as the provision of a guarantee that Palestinian demands will be met.
Almost 2,140 Palestinians, mostly civilians, including women, children and the elderly, were killed in the Israeli onslaught on Gaza. Around 11,000 others were also injured.
Tel Aviv says 72 Israelis were killed in the conflict, but Palestinian resistance movement Hamas says the number is much higher.
The Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement has said it fired over 3,000 rockets on dozens of Israeli cities during the Israeli war.
