Hundreds Lay Gaza Men to Rest

Hundreds in Gaza on Tuesday attended the funerals of two men who were killed by an Israeli airstrike the night before, a Ma’an reporter said.

In Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip, Palestinians marched and carried the bodies of Musab Moussa al-Zaaneen and Sharif Nasser, raising Palestinian flags and calling for continued resistance against the Israeli occupation.

The two men were buried in Beit Hanoun cemetery after noon prayers.

Nasser’s family told Ma’an he was expecting be killed, and had received threats from Israel two weeks before the airstrike, without providing further details.

AFP reported that Nasser was 31 years old and that al-Zaaneen was in his early 20s.

Israel’s army confirmed the airstrike, saying the “Israel Air Force aircraft targeted terrorists preparing to launch rockets in the northern Gaza Strip.”
