Israeli occupation forces have clashed with Palestinians in the occupied West Bank following the funeral of a young woman shot dead by the Zionist troops
Israeli occupation forces have clashed with Palestinians in the occupied West Bank following the funeral of a young woman shot dead by the Zionist troops.
The clashes erupted in the West Bank city of al-Khalil also known as Hebron on Wednesday when thousands of Palestinians, who were carrying the flag of Palestine, participated in the funeral ceremony of Hadil Salah Hashlamoun.
The Israeli forces fired stun grenades and used tear gas against the Palestinians, who responded by throwing stones.
The 18-year-old female student was fatally shot by Israeli forces on Tuesday morning and was left to bleed on a sidewalk in al-Khalil. A video published by PalMedia shows Israeli forces and settlers standing around, smiling and laughing in some cases, while the young woman bleeds to death.
Reports said she later died of her injuries in Shaare Zedek Hospital in occupied al-Quds (Jerusalem). Members of the Hashlamoun family confirmed the death of the woman with her father, Salaheddin, saying she was "martyred."
Israeli officials claim the troops opened fire on the woman as she was trying to stab soldiers at a checkpoint near the center of al-Khalil.
The people partaking in the funeral chanted slogans against the Tel Aviv regime and condemned the Israeli brutalities against Palestinians in the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East al-Quds.
They also called on the international community to break its silence over the Israeli crimes against the oppressed Palestinian people.
