JENIN, (PIC)– Thousands of Palestinians marched on Tuesday afternoon in the funeral procession of the slain young man Islam Tobasi in Jenin city, amid chants demanding the Palestinian Authority to give the Palestinian resistance a free hand to defend its people in the West Bank.

The participants marched across the streets of Jenin while chanting slogans condemning the PA and its security cooperation with the Israeli occupation regime.

The procession also saw violent clashes between some of the participants and the PA security forces which fired tear gas grenades at them.

The body of Tobasi was then buried at Al-Shuhada cemetery in Jenin refugee camp in the absence of PA officials whose presence was unwelcome.

For its part, the Islamic Jihad Movement mourned the death of Islam Tobasi, who was killed on Tuesday morning by Israeli soldiers after his detention in Jenin refugee camp.

Islamic Jihad considered what happened to Tobasi a cold-blooded execution of an unarmed civilian and another crime committed by the Israeli occupation against the Palestinians in Jenin refugee camp.

The Movement held the Israeli occupation regime fully responsible for the consequences of its crime and urged the Palestinians in the West Bank to revolt against the Israeli occupation forces.

In a related incident, scores of Palestinian young men rallied outside the PA headquarters in Jenin city on the afternoon of the same day and clashed with the PA security guards in the area.

The angry young men threw stones at the headquarters and the PA security guards and chanted slogans describing the PA as a puppet authority and condemning its security ties with the occupation.

Many protestors sustained tear gas injuries during the events.

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — Israeli forces killed a teenager in Jenin camp on Tuesday during an arrest raid, locals said.Islam al-Tubasi, 19, was shot in the leg after Israeli soldiers raided his family home in Jenin refugee camp. He was arrested and taken to a hospital in Israel, where he died from his injuries, sources told Ma’an.”Special units stormed the house after Israeli forces bombed the door and immediately went to the roof of the home where Islam sleeps. He tried to escape and they shot him and then dragged him out of the house and took him to an unknown destination,” family members told Ma’an.

A large patrol of around 20 Israeli military vehicles entered the camp at dawn and raided several homes.

Clashes broke out with local residents following the shooting of al-Tubasi, with dozens of camp residents injured by stun grenades, tear gas and live fire, Wafa reported.

Israeli forces returned to the camp at around 6 a.m., leading to clashes in which several young Palestinians were shot in the lower body with live fire, witnesses said.

Salah Nael Ghazzawi, 13, was shot in the leg with live fire and taken to hospital for treatment, Wafa added.
