AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) fired teargas and metal bullets at a funeral at the main entrance of Beit Ummar village, north of Al-Khalil, on Tuesday starting fire in a Palestine home.

Yousef Abu Mariya, a member of the popular committee against the wall in the village, told the PIC that IOF soldiers quelled hundreds of Palestinian citizens who were taking part in the funeral procession.

He said that the soldiers’ intensive use of teargas canisters burnt down the house of Ahmed Allami, which is only 500 meters away from the IOF military watchtower at the entrance to the village.

Abu Mariya said that many citizens were wounded in the clashes and that tension was still prevailing in the village.
