Israeli police arrests five Palestinians during repression of martyr’s funeral

Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- Israeli forces arrested five young men during the repression of the funeral of Noor Ishqir in occupied Jerusalem last night. The funeral had taken place amid strict measures imposed by the Israeli authorities.

Wadi Hilweh Information Center said Israeli forces repressed the funeral, throwing sound bombs at it near the neighborhood of Suwwaneh and prevented the participants from reaching the Mercy gate after arresting five of them.

The center noted that Israeli forces deployed in the streets leading to the cemetery of the Mercy and Al Asbat gates. Only 20 of the martyr’s family members were allowed to enter the cemetery after seeing their mobile phones.

Noor Ishqir was murdered by Israeli forces last Wednesday at the Zaim military checkpoint in the north of occupied Jerusalem although his family stresses that he put his hands up. The Israelis held his body but they handed it over last night after ordering to pay a 10,000 NIS fine, limit the participants, and not to raise any flags in his funeral.
