- Story Text: Hundreds of Palestinians attended on Wednesday (September 10) the funeral of a Palestinian who was killed by Israeli soldiers overnight near the West Bank city of Ramallah.
The soldiers, seeking to detain a Hamas militant, were confronted by around 50 Palestinians who hurled stones, petrol bombs and burning tyres at them, an Israeli military spokeswoman said.
Palestinian medics said 22-year-old Issa Al Qitri was shot in the heart in al-Amari refugee camp.
Clashes erupted after the funeral, between Israeli forces and Palestinians hurling stones.
Israel and Hamas, the Islamist militant group which dominates Gaza, fought a seven-week war in July and August.
The Israeli military spokeswoman said the man was shot dead while trying to throw an explosive device at the soldiers.
