Israeli occupation forces have invaded the mourning tent of a young Palestinian that they killed just this past week, assaulting mourning friends and family and tearing down tributes to the slain man, having already refused to return his body to his family after his killing.
21-year-old Mohammad Samir Obeid was killed by the Israeli army on Thursday, with friends and family having gathered at the mourning tent in al-‘Isawiya town, in occupied Jerusalem, his honour. The gathering was assaulted by the Israeli army, with the tent being torn down alongside posters of the deceased, the Israeli’s also seeing fit to ransack his family home.
Dozens of mourners are said to have been injured during the assault, including injuries to both the elderly and children.
The operation was followed by an invasion of Silwan town, Shu’fat town, and Shu’fat refugee camp, in Jerusalem, the occupying forces using a combination of live rounds, concussion grenades, gas bombs and rubber bullets against protestors.
