GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Thousands of Palestinians marched, on Wednesday, in the funeral processions of four Palestinians killed by Israel in the besieged Gaza Strip.

In the al-Shate refugee camp of western Gaza City, thousands of mourners took part in Ahmad Omar's, 20, funeral, including Head of the Hamas movement’s politburo and other leaders of Palestinian factions.

Omar's mother told Ma'an that the last thing her son told her before he headed to the protests at the eastern borders was that she is “the most beautiful gift," that is when she asked him what he wanted for his upcoming birthday.

Mourners and participants in the funeral waved Palestinian flags and flags of the Fatah movement, to which Omar belongs to.

In Jabaliya in the northern Gaza Strip, funeral procession for Muhammad Ahmad Abu Naji, 34, set off in a crowded march.

Meanwhile, in Khan Younis City in the southern Gaza Strip, mourners marched in the funerals of Naji Jamil Abu Assi, 18, and his cousin Alaa Ziad Abu Assi, 21.

Mourners laid wreaths of flowers on the bodies of the Abu Assi cousins and repeated slogans demanding revenge.

Omar and Abu Naji were shot and killed by Israeli forces in the northern besieged Gaza Strip while participating in a peaceful protest calling for an end to the nearly 12-year-long siege by Israel on Gaza, on Tuesday.

The Abu Assi cousins were killed after being targeted by an Israeli airstrike in east of Khan Younis in the southern besieged Gaza Strip, on Monday night.
