BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Thousands of Palestinians on Wednesday attended the funeral of Mutaz Zawahrah, 27, who was shot dead by Israeli forces during clashes in Bethlehem the day before.

The funeral set off from Duheisha refugee camp for Beit Jala Governmental Hospital. The procession then carried Mutaz's body to his family home for relatives to bid him farewell, before proceeding to al-Shuhada cemetery in Irtas in southern Bethlehem.

Those attending raised Palestinian flags and chanted slogans, calling for Palestinians to unite in solidarity against the Israeli occupation.

Clashes between Palestinian civilians and Israeli military forces have broken out near Israel's illegal separation wall at the northenr entrance of Bethlehem nearly every day this month, amid ongoing clashes across the rest of the occupied Palestinian territory.

A little more than a week ago, a 13-year-old resident of Aida refugee camp was shot near the heart during clashes in Bethlehem and died shortly after.

Mutaz' death came one day after the UN agency for refugees condemned the "widespread loss of civilian life" across the occupied Palestinian territory, where 30 have been killed by Israeli forces since Oct. 1.

And Israel wants to keep the attackers dead bodies from their families. They'll be asking for more trouble. Which is something the Israelis are known for, asking for trouble.
