Ali Kino's funeral in Iraq Burin
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Thousands of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and occupied West Bank marched on Friday in the funerals of the two Palestinian teenagers who were killed by Israeli forces during protests on Thursday.

In the northern West Bank village of Iraq Burin, in the Nablus district, crowds set off from the Ivillage mosque following prayers towards the village’s cemetery where 16-year-old Ali Kino was laid to rest.

Mourners chanted Palestinian national slogans in support of Kino, promising revenge against the Israeli occupation. Palestinian flags and flags of the Fatah movement were waved during the procession.

Meanwhile, the funeral of Amir Abed al-Hamid Abu Musaed, 16, set off in the central Gaza Strip following Friday prayers.

Mourners set off from the al-Mughazi refugee camp’s mosque towards Abu Musaed’s family home, then to the camp’s cemetery where he was buried.

Abu Musaed was killed by Israeli forces at the eastern borders of al-Bureij refugee camp on Thursday.

The two teenagers were the third Palestinians, after 16-year-old Musaab al-Tamimi, to be killed by Israeli forces since the beginning of the year.
