HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Clashes broke out after Israeli forces along with settlers attacked a Palestinian funeral in Beit Ummar north of Hebron on Thursday, a local activist said.

Forces detained Mohammad Al-Alami, 23, according to Mohammad Ayyad Awad, spokesman of the popular committee to resist the wall and the settlements in Beit Ummar.

He said that that Palestinians were participating in a funeral when a settler parked near the Islamic cemetery struck one of the attendants. Fighting broke out and Israeli forces arrived to help the settlers.

Ayyad said journalists were not allowed to film the incident.
