Thousands of Palestinians attend Jabari funeral

November 15, 2012 11:25

Thousands of Palestinians on Thursday attended the funeral of Ahmed Jabari, the former leader of Hamas' military wing who was killed in an Israeli airstrike Wednesday.

The procession, which began at Shifa hospital in Gaza City where the terrorist's body was being held, was slated to stop at Jabari's home, a mosque and finally the cemetery where other former Hamas leaders, including founder Ahmed Yassin, are buried.

Senior Hamas officials did not attend the funeral out of fear for their safety.
