Clashes erupt during funeral of Bethlehem’s martyrs

Clashes funeral two martyrs

Thousands have participated Saturday morning in the funeral of the two martyrs Abdullah Taqatqa and Mohammad Tenouh, from Bethlehem in the southern West Bank.

According to the PIC reporter, the funeral procession set off from Beit Jala governmental hospital in Bethlehem, and headed towards Takoa town where the martyrs’ families gave their final farewells. Their bodies were then taken to the local mosque for funeral prayers.

Mourners marched in the town’s streets holding the bodies on their shoulders, until they reached the cemetery where they buried the two slain Palestinians.

Following the burial, violent clashes broke out in the town between Israeli occupation forces and young men in the town amid heavy firing of teargas bombs by IOF soldiers.

On Friday evening, Israel returned the bodies of the two martyrs who were both killed by Israeli soldiers after allegedly carrying out anti-occupation stabbing attacks last month.
