Clashes erupt following funeral of Palestinian

World Bulletin / News Desk

Violent clashes erupted between Palestinian mourners and Israeli forces in the West Bank following the funeral procession of a young man, who died of injuries he sustained one year ago.

Thousands of Palestinians held a massive funeral for Mahmoud Awad, 22, who breathed his last on Thursday of injuries he sustained last year during clashes with Israeli forces.

Eyewitnesses said mourners hurled stones at Israeli forces near the Qalandia checkpoint between Ramallah and Al-Quds (occupied Jerusalem). Israeli forces used teargas and rubber bullets to disperse the angry Palestinians.

Awad was pronounced dead in a Ramallah hospital where he lied in a coma after he sustained a gunshot injury in the head a year ago.
