Thousands attend funeral of killed Palestinians

Sept. 23, 2014 4:42 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 24, 2014 5:50 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Thousands of mourners attended the funeral for two Palestinian men killed by Israeli forces overnight during an ambush in the Hebron area.

The funeral for Amer Abu Aisha and Marwan al-Qawasmeh, suspects in the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teens in June, set off from the al-Hussein Bin Ali mosque in central Hebron.

Abu Aisha's mother took part in carrying her son's coffin, as her husband and other sons are currently being held in Israeli detention centers.

The governor of Hebron said Israel "executed" the men and at no point attempted to detain and interrogate them.

The bodies of al-Qawasmeh and Abu Aisha were given to the Palestinian Red Crescent and the Palestinian Military Liaison after the families identified the bodies.

Clashes broke out before the funeral, with 20 Palestinians injured by live fire and rubber-coated bullets.

One man was shot in the head and medics say he is in a critical condition.

Abu Aisha and al-Qawasmeh were killed overnight following a gunfight after Israeli forces surrounded a property they were hiding in.

Israel says they were responsible for the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teenagers in June.
