Mourners bury woman, teen killed by Israeli forces in Bethlehem

Jan. 23, 2013 10:14 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 26, 2013 10:25 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Hundreds of mourners on Wednesday attended the funerals of a woman and a teenager shot and killed by Israeli forces in Bethlehem.

Lubna Hanash, 22, was shot in the head on Wednesday morning as Israeli soldiers in a civilian car opened fire at a group standing at the entrance to al-Arrub refugee camp south of Bethlehem.

She was buried in the Hussein Ubayyat cemetery on the eastern outskirts of Bethlehem.

Also Wednesday, 15-year-old Salih al-Amarin, from Azza refugee camp, died in hospital after Israeli forces shot him in the head during clashes in Bethlehem on Friday.

Mourners carried the teenager's body from his family home to a cemetery in Aida refugee camp.

Clashes erupted near Aida camp as angry residents threw stones at Israeli soldiers, who fired rubber-coated bullets and tear gas canisters at mourners, injuring 10 Palestinians.

Three Palestinians were hospitalized, including one young man who was hit in the face by a rubber-coated bullet, Red Crescent official Abdul-Halim Jaafra said.

Jaafra told Ma'an that another seven people were treated at the scene for injuries.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said around 400 Palestinians rioted and threw rocks and fires at forces "who responded with riot dispersal means."

At least six Palestinians have been fatally shot by Israeli forces in January.

Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad issued a statement calling for "strong condemnation from the international community" of these shootings, and urged "immediate intervention to compel Israel to desist from these serious attacks on our people."

At the UN Security Council on Wednesday, UN envoy Robert Serry expressed concern at the increased use of live fire by Israeli forces in the West Bank.
