The funeral was held today for Abed al-Rahman Shadi Obeidallah, the 13 year old boy shot and killed by Israeli soldiers during clashes in Aida refugee camp in Bethlehem on Monday.

Obeidallah was shot in the chest in the clashes that took place at Rachel's Tomb in Bethlehem.

He was taken in a civilian car to Beit Jala hospital where he underwent surgery, but was later pronounced dead.

At least four other Palestinians were injured in the clashes in Bethlehem, including one young man who was shot with live fire in his thigh, and another who was shot in the head with a rubber-coated steel bullet. Both were taken to hospital.




Obeidallah’s death comes as violent clashes escalate around the West Bank and Jerusalem.


In al Bireh, north of Ramallah, Israeli forces shot and injured six Palestinians with live rounds and rubber-coated steel bullets during clashes late Monday night, medics told Ma’an News Agency.

Meanwhile, in clashes in the occupied East Jerusalem neighborhood of Beit Hanina, Israeli forces shot a Palestinian youth in the chest with a live bullet.

According to Ma’an News Agency, the boy was taken to Al-Makassed hospital for treatment and is in critical condition.

On Monday evening, a Red Crescent spokeswoman told Ma'an News Agency that at least 500 Palestinians had so far been injured in the clashes.

At least 41 Palestinians have been shot with live rounds, while 143 have been injured by rubber-coated steel bullets.

On Sunday, The Palestinian Red Cross declared a state of emergency across the occupied Palestinian territory, and said it was putting all its staff, teams and volunteers on standby.

The PLO has also warned that attacks by both Israeli soldiers and settlers indicated "the Israeli government is deliberately creating a situation of violence and instability that threatens to spiral out of control."
