RAMALLAH — Palestinians on Wednesday gathered for the funeral of Muhammad Mubarak, a 22-year-old man who was shot dead by Israeli forces earlier in the day.

A Ma’an reporter said a funeral procession brought Mubarak’s body from Ramallah Governmental Hospital to a cemetery in al-Jalazun refugee camp, where the man was laid to rest.

A group of masked men fired shots into the air during the procession.

Mubarak’s father said he was shot dead without reason, denying army claims that he was armed and fired at Israeli forces.
