Dozens of Palestinians walked in a funeral procession on Friday (February 7) for Palestinian police officer Tareq Badawan, who was killed by what authorities said was Israeli gunfire in the West Bank City of Jenin on Thursday.
Israeli officials did not comment, and Israeli media reported he was shot by troops by mistake.
At least two Palestinians were killed in the occupied West Bank and 16 Israelis were hurt on Thursday in a surge of violence that erupted amid strong Palestinian anger at a U.S. peace plan.
In Jerusalem, an Arab citizen of Israel was killed after he shot and slightly wounded an Israeli paramilitary border policeman at an entrance to the walled Old City, Israeli authorities said, calling the attack politically motivated.
Long-simmering Palestinian unrest has been stoked anew by anger at U.S. President Donald Trump's Middle East peace plan, which was embraced by Israel and rejected by the Palestinians when it was announced last week.
