Israeli Troops Attack West Bank Funeral Ceremony

Israeli forces have attacked the funeral ceremony of a Palestinian teenager shot dead by Israeli settlers in the West Bank city of al-Khalil (Hebron).

Israeli soldiers fired tear gas, sound grenades, and rubber-coated bullets on Saturday to disperse thousands of mourners attending the funeral of Yusef Ikhlil, the Ma'an news agency reported.

The 17-year-old youth died on Friday shortly after he sustained a head injury when he was targeted by Israelis from an illegal settlement north of the city.'
