GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Palestinian crowds marched on Saturday noon in the funeral processions of two Palestinians killed by Israeli forces during Friday protests in the besieged Gaza Strip.

In Gaza City in the central Gaza Strip, mourners marched in the funeral of Ahmad Yaghi, 25, who was killed by Israeli live ammunition during "The Great March of Return" protests on the eastern borders of the city.

Fatah-affiliated armed men opened fire during Yaghi's funeral procession, confirming that resistance would continue in the Gaza Strip.

Meanwhile, the funeral procession of 15-year-old Muath al-Suri set off in the al-Nuseirat refugee camp of the central Gaza Strip.

Al-Suri succumbed on Saturday morning to wounds he sustained in eastern al-Breij refugee camp on Friday.

Mourners repeated slogans calling for revenge for the killed Palestinians.
