Hebron, West Bank
A funeral procession takes place for Nader Idris, a Palestinian father of seven killed by live fire shot by Israeli troops, in Hebron, West Bank. The funeral was followed by violent clashes between local residents and Israeli troops in the nearby Bab al-Zaweya district.
Hundreds of Hebron citizens partook in the funeral amongst sentiments of public outrage and chants against the ongoing Israeli invasion of Gaza.
The funeral procession moved around in the city with the participation of many national public figures. Participants carried the Palestinian flag.
After the funeral, clashes broke out between local civilians and Israeli forces in the area of Bab al-Zaweya. Young men threw rocks and empty bottles, and Israeli forces hit back with live bullets, rubber bullets, and sound bombs.
Five men were injured with live bullets in the bottom part of the body, and journalists were forbidden to cover the incident.
