Jerusalem clashes after teen's funeral

Israeli forces attacked the funeral procession of slain Jerusalem teenager Abd al-Majid Sinokrot after mourners marched from his hometown of Wadi Joz to the al-Aqsa mosque on Monday.

Mourners raised Palestinian flags and after they left the mosque, Israeli forces fired stun grenades, tear gas, and rubber-coated steel bullets toward them near al-Sahira gate.

Clashes also broke out along Salah al-Din street in Jerusalem.

There were no immediate reports of injury.

The clashes shut down traffic throughout much of occupied East Jerusalem. more
