Hundreds lay slain Nablus teen to rest

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Hundreds of Palestinians on Thursday marched in the funeral procession of 19-year-old Samah Abd al-Mumen in the Nablus-area village of Ammuriya village in the northern occupied West Bank.

Samah died on Wednesday from wounds sustained nearly two months prior when she was caught in Israeli crossfire during an attempted stab attack at Huwwara military checkpoint.

The funeral set off from the village’s school after prayers and headed to the local cemetery. Mourners chanted national slogans and waved Palestinian flags.

At the ceremony, Secretary of the Fatah movement, Jihad Ramadan, said: “As Israel keeps committing crimes against Palestinians everyday, Nablus is giving farewell to one martyr, Samah, just to receive another martyr." 

Shortly before the funeral began, a 15-year-old Palestinian was shot dead at the Huwwara checkpoint after the Israeli army said he attempted to stab a soldier.

Ramadan said that Palestinians would continue to resist by all legitimate means until the Israel ended its ongoing military occupation and an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital was established.

Samah was shot on Oct. 23 when Israeli forces opened fire on and killed Alaa Khalil Sabah Hashah, 16, after the army said he attempted to stab a soldier.

Her father told Ma’an that she died in Benlson Medical Center in Israel after being transferred from Rafidiya hospital in Nablus due to her critical injuries.

Hashah was shot over ten times after the attempted stabbing, according to witnesses.

No Israeli injuries were reported following the incident.
