Funeral held for Palestinian teenager killed by Israel

Funeral held for Palestinian teenager killed by Israel

Israeli forces arrested Erfaiyeh, a resident of the West Bank city of Hebron, in Ramallah on Saturday.

The body of Ori Ansbaher, 19, was found on Thursday evening in the south of occupied Jerusalem, and she was buried on Friday in the Israeli settlement of Tekoa.

At least 249 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire since then, the majority shot during clashes, though others have been hit by tank fire or air strikes.

Meanwhile, a senior USA official said that Palestinian officials have been invited to a U.S. conference on the Middle East hosted by Poland next week where White House senior adviser Jared Kushner will discuss plans for peace between the Palestinians and Israelis.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu commended the security forces for "apprehending - within a few hours - the abhorrent murderer".

On the same day, B'Tselem continued, 13-year-old child 'Abd a-Ra'uf Salahah, from Jabalya refugee camp in the northern Gaza Strip, "attended a different demonstration held east of the camp".




The two teenagers were standing 50-60 meters (160-200 feet) from the fence at separate protests when they were shot by Israeli forces, according to rights group al-Mezan.

The health ministry put Ishtiwi's age at 18, but Mezan said he was 17.

At around 4pm, as she stood about 200 metres away from the perimeter fence, Amal was shot in the neck with a live bullet fired by an Israeli sniper.

The Israeli army declined to comment on the death, but said that 8,200 "rioters and demonstrators" had been protesting along the frontier. The Israeli troops responded with barrages of tear gas and live fire.

The eyewitnesses said that dozens of Palestinian activists gathered close to the border fence between northeastern Gaza Strip and Israel and exploded sound bombs on Sunday night, Xinhua news agency reported.
