Clashes across West Bank as 2 protesters buried

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Mourners clashed with Israeli troops at two funerals on Tuesday as Palestinians across the West Bank continued to protest Israeli attacks on Gaza.

In Hebron, hundreds attended the funeral for Hamdi Mohammad Jawwad al-Falah, who was shot by Israeli soldiers at a demonstration in Hebron's Bir al-Mahjar neighborhood on Tuesday.

Medics said al-Fatah, 22, had been shot with four live bullets in the chest, face and knee. An Israeli military spokeswoman said he he had assaulted forces who shot him.

Mourners marched from al-Hussein Ben Ali Mosque after noon prayers, calling for revenge and for national unity.

After the burial, hundreds of young men headed to the Bab al-Zawiya square in Shuhada street, near a Jewish settlement. Israeli forces showered them with tear gas canisters and rubber-coated steel bullets.

Over 40 people required treatment for tear-gas inhalation and eight were hit by rubber bullets, medics said. A tear-gas canister hit a Red Crescent ambulance, smashing its windshields and filling the vehicle with gas, injuring medics.

Meanwhile, thousands attended the funeral for Rushdi Tamimi, a 31-year-old police officer who died Monday two days after he was shot in the stomach by Israeli forces at a protest in Nabi Saleh. A video of Saturday's protest shows Israeli forces threatening demonstrators who tried to administer first aid.

Tamimi's body was taken in a military vehicle from Ramallah hospital to al-Manara square, where mourners were waiting, including Ramallah governor Laila Ghannam, senior police officials and security force leaders.

The procession then headed to Bir Zeit police center, where Tamimi's colleagues paid their respects, and on to Nabi Saleh where he was buried.

"Martyr, rest, we will pick up the fight," mourners chanted as they carried the body through the village.

After the funeral procession, masked youths hurled stones against Israeli soldiers lined up at the entrance to the village, who responded with tear-gas and rubber bullets.

East of Hebron, Israeli forces closed the entrance to Bani Naim village amid clashes between residents and soldiers.

In the northern West Bank, hundreds of protesters marched to al-Jalama crossing to protest Israel's attacks on Gaza.

Israeli forces set up a checkpoint to stop protesters reaching the crossing and declared al-Jalama village a closed military zone.

Demonstrators pelted the checkpoint with stones, empty bottles and Molotov cocktails and Israeli forces fired tear-gas canisters, stun grenades, rubber-coated bullets and foul-smelling chemical liquid at protesters gathered in Jezreel valley.

Two protesters sustained leg injuries from rubber bullets and Israeli forces detained six Palestinians, including Hamid Abu al-Qarn, Hasan Hassis and Mahmoud Kamil.

A Ma’an reporter identified three of the detainees as Hamid abu al-Qarn, Hasan Hassis and Mahmoud Kamil.

On Tuesday evening, Israeli forces raided Yabad, west of Jenin, and detained four young men, Muhammad Sabri Baajawi, Eyhab Issa Baajawi, Raef Sabri Baajawi and Yousif Ahmad Masharqa. Soldiers told locals the men had thrown stones at troops.

In Tubas, soldiers detained Mohammad Radwan Daraghma after raiding his home.
