HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Hundreds of people flocked to the funeral of a Palestinian teenager killed in the southern West Bank on Thursday.

Muhammad al-Salaymeh was shot dead by an Israeli border guard in Hebron's Old City on Wednesday, his 17th birthday.

Dozens of pupils from the Tariq Bin Zayid school that Muhammad came to the funeral, a day after they celebrated with him.

"We lost a friend, a brother, and a sporting hero," his friend Ahmad Al-Jamal told Ma'an.

Hebron governor Kamel Hmaid and Palestinian parliamentary speaker Aziz Dweik also participated in the funeral.

Al-Salaymeh's family said Israeli forces prevented them from burying Muahmmad in the al-Raas cemetery next to their home as it is close to an Israeli settlement, Kiryat Arba.

The funeral procession instead headed from al-Ansar mosque before laying him to rest in a cemetery in Limboa in the north of the city.

Earlier Thursday, medics said five people, including four teenagers, were hospitalized after clashes with Israeli forces in Hebron after Muhammad's death.

I don't see any toy gun mentioned in this report. # 1 and # 2- you are always making excuses for murderous actions of the most "moral army in the world." Trouble is, no-one believes you any more. Are the settlers trying to take over the cemetery as well? Why prevent people being buried in their own cemetery? Mindless harassment.

THE TRUTH hurts the "resistance", by making the situation appear as:
- HAMAS IS EVIL enough to be charged at the ICC,
AND it's leaders found guilty of war crimes, while
- the ISRAELIs appear to have acted in reasonably in SELF-DEFENSE.

There was no toy gun. Where is the video showing a toy guy pointed at the head of the soldier? How was she able to shoot him 6 times in his body if he was standing behind the soldier with a toy gun to his head, as she stated during her interview? They have a video at that location. Israel would have that video plastered all over. The boy was hard of hearing and didn't jump fast enough for his murderer, so she shot him six times. Coward.
