Hundreds of Palestinians attended on Wednesday the funeral of a Palestinian who was killed overnight during IDF raids near the West Bank city of Ramallah.

The soldiers, seeking to detain a Hamas militant, were confronted by around 50 Palestinians who hurled stones, petrol bombs and burning tires at them, an IDF spokeswoman said.

Palestinian medics said 22-year-old Issa al-Qitri was shot in the heart in al-Amari refugee camp.

Clashes erupted after the funeral, between Israeli forces and Palestinians hurling stones.
