RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A large number of mourners took part in the funeral procession of Ramallah teen shot dead by Israeli forces in a huge demonstration near Qalandia checkpoint Thursday evening.

The procession for Mohammad al-Araj, 17, commenced from the Ramallah Medical Complex, before continuing on to Qalandia mosque and ending in the Qalandia refugee camp's graveyard.

Some participants fired shots in the air after he was buried, calling for revenge.

Mohammad was shot dead in the left eye near Qalandia checkpoint on Thursday, in a march of tens of thousands in solidarity with Gaza that was the largest the West Bank had seen in years.

It was his 17th birthday.
