SALFIT (Ma'an) -- Hundreds of Palestinians marched in the funeral of Elias Saleh Yassin, 22, in the Bidya town west of the northern occupied West Bank district of Salfit, on Saturday noon.

Israeli authorities had returned Yassin's body to his family late Friday, as they had kept his body withheld since he was shot dead on October 15th, 2018 for allegedly attempting to carry out a stabbing attack near the Jit crossroads.

The funeral procession set off from the Yasser Arafat Hospital, headed towards his family home in Bidya for final farewell before prayers at the village’s mosque and burial at the cemetery.

Yassin’s mother put him dressed him up and declared this as “Elias’ wedding day.”

Saleh Yassin, Elias’ father, told Ma’an that “the occupation committed a crime against my son Elias, and despite all of its’ crimes we will

resist.”
