Thousand attend funeral for Jenin man

JENIN (Ma’an) — Thousands of mourners on Saturday attended the funeral of a 20-year-old man who died after being shot by Israeli soldiers in a Jenin refugee camp.

Karim Abu Sbeih, 20, died in the Arab Hospital in Nablus on Saturday.

He was hospitalized on Aug. 20 and had part of his kidneys, colon, lungs and liver removed after he was shot in the chest by Israeli forces during a raid on Jenin refugee camp. Majd Mohammad Anis Lahlouh, 22, was killed during the raid, after being shot in the chest by Israeli soldiers.

Masked gunmen from Fatah’s Al-Aqsa Martyrs brigades joined the procession through the camp, before Abu Sbeih was buried in a camp cemetery.

Mourners chanted for unity and an end to Israeli occupation. They also called on the international community to support Palestinians and end Israeli settlement activity.
