Thousands took part in a funeral march for Mahmoud Awwad in Qalandiya refugee camp on Friday, a day after the Palestinian man succumbed to wounds inflicted upon him by Israeli soldiers.

Mahmoud Wajeeh Awwad, 28, died Thursday in an Israeli hospital from months-old bullet wounds inflicted by Israeli forces.

Israeli soldiers shot Awwad in the head with a rubber-coated steel bullet eight months ago during clashes at the entrance to Qalandiya refugee camp near Ramallah.

The injury caused him to fall into a coma, and he remained comatose until medics pronounced him dead late Thursday.

Israeli forces regularly fire rubber-coated steel bullets and tear gas canisters at Palestinian protesters, referring to the practice as "riot dispersal."

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.

#2: Palestinians have great heroes, Hamas, Islamic Jihad & all the other factions. Haven't you seen any of their great video clips, with the mortars, rockets & AK 47's? Oh, but you live in the USA, all that censorship & lack of access to real people. Must be horrible being fed a diet of AIPAC every day! Sad, what some people have to endure, we feel really sorry for you. May Allah grant our martyrs the highest spaces in Jannah (Paradise), accept our good deeds & forgive us for those not so good.
