Murdered theater director Juliano Mer Khamis laid to rest

April 6, 2011

TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma’an) — The Palestinian director of a West Bank theater who was murdered on Tuesday was buried Wednesday at the kibbutz Ramot Manashe cemetery.

Juliano Mer-Khamis was to be buried next to his mother Arna, the Israeli news site Ynet reported. Palestinian youths who study at the Freedom Theater were given permission to join Israeli and Arab actors at the service.

The murder of the 52-year-old director sparked grief and outrage among both Israelis and Palestinians, and no small measure of shock in the Jenin refugee camp, where he had lived for the last seven years.
