TULKAREM (Ma'an) -- Palestinian ambassador to Poland Azmi al-Daqqa was laid to rest Sunday afternoon in his hometown of Attil in the northern Tulkarem district of the occupied West Bank.

Al-Daqqa passed away last Monday at a hospital in Warsaw after fighting an illness. His body was brought from Poland to Jordan, and then transported to the occupied West Bank via the Allenby Bridge crossing.

Adviser to the Palestinian presidency Hajj Ismail Jaber attended the funeral along with others including Governor of Tulkarem Issam Abu Bakr, Undersecretary of the Palestinian Foreign Ministry Taysir Jaradat, Commander General of Palestinian security services in Tulkarem Zahi Saadah, and Mayor of Attil Nashat Daqqa.

An official ceremony was held in Jericho earlier on Sunday to honor the deceased, also attended by Abu Bakr, as well as Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki, and Secretary-General of the Palestine Liberation Organization Saeb Erekat, among others.
