HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces intervened in the funeral of a Palestinian woman in Beit Ummar, north of Hebron, on Friday, Palestinian activists in the West Bank village said.

Muhammad Ayyad Awad of the local popular committee said soldiers stopped the funeral from reaching a cemetery on the main road. The people had to go through a bypass road to reach the cemetery.

He added that as soon as Palestinians arrived at the cemetery, Israeli forces shot tear gas grenades to disperse them.

Awad said that the forces also raided the house of Mahmoud Abu Ayyash and took over the roof of his house. Israeli bulldozers closed the northern entrance of the village with cement blocks and closed the main gate on the northern entrance.

Witnesses told Ma’an that forces shot tear gas canisters toward residents and detained more than 15 Palestinians from the village. The witnesses said one of the detainees was injured.
