Mohammad Awad, a local Palestinian activist, told WAFA that Israeli soldiers attacked the coffin of the deceased Palestinian woman as well as the pallbearers as the funeral passed through the main entrance to the town.
Awad said the Isreali soldiers fired lives shots into the air, kicked the pallbearers, and fired teargas canisters and stun grenades in an attempt to disperse the funeral. No injuries were reported.
