RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Thousands of Palestinians marched, on Sunday, in the funeral of a Palestinian who succumbed to his wounds sustained two weeks ago by Israeli forces during clashes in the al-Mazraa al-Gharbiyeh village, north of the central occupied West Bank district of Ramallah.

Muhammad Ibrahim Shreitah, 26, succumbed to his wounds after he was shot and wounded by Israeli live ammunition during clashes that erupted in the al-Mazraa al-Gharbiyeh village about two weeks ago.

Medical sources at the Istishari Arab Hospital in Ramallah City, where Shreitah was transferred for treatment, confirmed that he was shot and wounded in the head by Israeli forces.

The funeral processions began as Shreitah’s body arrived to the village, the body was carried on shoulders of the residents for about four kilometers towards his home, where final goodbyes were said before prayers took place at the village's local mosque and then burial at the village's cemetery.

It is noteworthy that violent clashes erupt on a weekly basis among Palestinians and Israeli forces due to planned confiscation of lands, which belong to the residents of the al-Mazraa al-Gharbiyeh village, as part of an illegal Israeli settlement expansion plan.
