Teen killed during alleged attempted car-ramming laid to rest in Hebron

HEBRON (Ma’an) -- A funeral procession was held on Monday afternoon in the town of Bani Naim east of Hebron in the southern occupied West Bank for an 18-year-old who was shot dead earlier on Monday during an alleged attempted vehicular attack.

The teenager, identified as Yousif Walid Tarayra, was given a military funeral by the Palestinian Authority.

PA military vehicles paraded from al-Ahli hospital to the Ras al-Jurah neighborhood. Tarayra's body was then taken to Bani Naim, the teenager's hometown, where family and friends awaited his remains. 

After prayers at the town’s main mosque, mourners marched to the town’s cemetery, where Tarayra was laid to rest.

Participants in the funeral shouted slogans urging Palestinian resistance to retaliate against “Israeli crimes on the Palestinian people.”

Tarayra was shot dead shortly after two other Palestinians were shot and killed after opening fire on Israeli forces waiting at a bus stop near the settlement of Kiryat Arba on the outskirts of Hebron.

The two were identified as Qasem Farid Jaber and Ameer Fuad al-Junaidi.

Several hours after the attacks, Israeli forces raided the homes of Jaber and al-Junaidi. Forces also briefly closed off the main entrance to Bani Naim village.

Over 190 Palestinians and nearly 30 Israelis have been killed since violence increased in the occupied Palestinian territory and Israel in October, with a wave of small-scale attacks and attempted attacks, the majority carried out by Palestinian individuals on Israeli military targets.
