RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- Mourners marched on Saturday in the funeral of a 20-year-old Palestinian shot dead the day before after attempting to ram his car into Israeli soldiers in the occupied West Bank village of Silwad.
Locals told Ma’an that Silwad residents were joined by Palestinians from neighboring villages for the burial of Abed Raed Abdullah Hamad.
The funeral procession began from Palestine Medical Complex in Ramallah. Hamad’s body was taken via ambulance to his family home in Silwad northeast of the city, where relatives bid him a final goodbye.
Hamad was then laid to rest in the village cemetery following funeral prayers.
Hamad’s mother told reporters during the funeral that he had driven her to a relative’s home before he carried out the attack. more
