HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Thousands of people on Friday took part in the funeral procession of Mahmoud Jihad Muhammad Dudeen, 14, who was killed by Israeli forces overnight during a raid.

The procession began at the al-Kabir mosque in Dura, with mourners walking with Dudeen's body to the town's cemetery.

Residents chanted slogans for national unity and condemned the shooting and daily crimes committed by Israeli forces against Palestinians.

Local sources told Ma'an that Mahmoud Jihad Muhammad Dudeen was struck by live bullets in the chest before being taken to Hebron Governmental Hospital, where he was shortly pronounced dead.

The local sources said Israeli forces opened fire directly on Mahmoud during the clashes which occurred in the Haninia neighborhood of Dura.

Another Palestinian, Mustafa Hosni Aslan, 22, died on Friday after being shot in the head by Israeli forces during a raid on Qalandiya refugee camp south of Ramallah.
