HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Palestinian residents of al-Arroub refugee camp in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron attended a funeral Saturday for Ibrahim Baradiya, 54, who was killed by Israeli forces on Thursday after he allegedly attempted to carry out an ax attack near the camp entrance.

Baradiya’s body was transported to the refugee camp via a back road rather than the main road, out of fear that the Israeli authorities might try to take back the body after it was announced it had been delivered to the family “by mistake."

Palestinian military liaisons received the body on Friday, and it was then taken to al-Ahli hospital in Hebron.

During the funeral march, mourners called upon the international community to end Israeli violations against Palestinian rights.

Clashes broke out between Palestinian youths and Israeli military forces following the funeral.

Baradiya was among more than 200 Palestinians to be killed since a wave of unrest swept the occupied Palestinian territory in October. His killing marked the first after two consecutive weeks without deaths in the context of attacks or clashes -- the longest period without deaths since the escalation of violence.

Baradiya's death marked one of at least three residents to be killed by Israeli forces in al-Arroub refugee camp since October. Two other residents -- both teenagers -- were shot dead on separate occasions when clashes broke out during military raids on the camp.

The majority of Palestinians have been killed while allegedly carrying out or attempting to carry out small-scale attacks that have left nearly 30 Israelis dead, while nearly 50 have been shot dead during clashes with the military.

Several Palestinians that have been killed were shot dead under circumstances that rights groups and the international community have labeled extrajudicial executions carried out by Israeli forces.
