RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The friends and classmates of a youth slain by Israeli soldiers during Nakba Day protests earlier this week held vigils to honor his memory in the central West Bank city of Ramallah on Friday.

Crowds gathered to pay tribute to the life of 17-year-old Nadim Siyam Nuwara at Saint George's High School, at the headquarters of the First Ramallah Group scouting organization where he was a member, and at Manara square in the city center.

Mourners held up pictures of Nuwara in school and scout activities, and lit candles in his memory.

Saif Shomali, a friend of Nuwara's who took part in a vigil, said that the teen was a big fan of sports and a top athlete, and that he was a popular gymnast and a basketball player at his school.




Correction: An earlier version of this report said Nuwara was 15. Dr. Samir Saliba, head of the emergency department at Ramallah Hospital, told Ma'an in the aftermath of the shooting that he was 17.
