Israeli forces shoot, injure 11 Palestinians after funeral

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Monday shot and injured 11 Palestinians with live and rubber-coated steel bullets during clashes that erupted after a funeral in Kattana village in the occupied West Bank district of Ramallah, medical sources said.

Medical sources said Israeli forces shot and injured seven Palestinians with live fire, and four more with rubber-coated steel bullets following a funeral procession for Ahmad Jamal Taha, 16.

Taha was shot dead in November, after stabbing and killing an Israeli soldier on Route 443, west of Ramallah. 

More than two thousand people attended the funeral, which started from the Palestine Medical complex in Ramallah, after Israeli forces released the body, which then underwent an autopsy.

After the autopsy, the body was brought to the family's home, then local mosque, before Taha was lain to rest in the village's cemetery. 

Taha's body was one of dozens of Palestinian remains that have been released by Israeli forces during the past week.
