State of Palestine: Thousands attend funeral of Palestinian killed in clashes

Thousands of Palestinians attended the funeral of 21-year-old Jamal Mohammed Musleh in Gaza on Saturday after he was shot dead by Israeli security forces during a protest a day earlier. Musleh died of a bullet injury to his stomach in the early hours of Saturday morning at Gaza’s Deir al-Balah hospital. His grieving mother described her son's final words before his fatal injury... Еще. «Yesterday, Friday, my son went there directly after lunch and told me 'my mother — today I am a martyr'. He also told neighbours and friends that he will be a martyr today. I told him not to go to the borders,» she said. Musleh's body was carried through the town streets by family and friends. He was taking part in protests in response to calls from Palestinian factions for a fourth day of rage against US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. He had marched to the Gaza border crossing with Israel to join thousands protesting.
