Thousands of Palestinians marched Saturday afternoon in the funeral of Yaser Abu al-Naja, 13, who was killed on Friday by Israeli gunfire while taking part in the Great March of Return east of Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip.
The funeral was attended by a number of Hamas officials including the member of Hamas’s Political Bureau Khalil al-Hayya who said in a speech that the killing of Abu al-Naja is a new crime added to Israel’s endless series of crimes against the Palestinian people.
Al-Hayya added that Abu al-Naja’s blood will push the Palestinian people to make more sacrifices and unite against the conspiracies plotted to liquidate their cause.
Abu al-Naja was one of two Palestinians killed on Friday by the Israeli occupation forces who attacked the civilians participating in the Great March of Return protests along Gaza’s eastern border.
Since the start of the Great March of Return on 30th March, over 130 Palestinian civilians have been killed and about 14,000 injured.
