Palestinians mourn the death of Eyad al-Hallaq

Occupied Jerusalem, (Drah)-- 

Dozens of Palestinians on Sunday evening took to the streets in Occupied Jerusalem to take part in the funeral of Eyad al-Hallaq, 32, a young man with special needs who was shot dead by the Israeli police on Saturday.

The funeral procession set off from al-Makassed Hospital to al-Hallaq’s family home, and then the funeral prayer was held at al-Asbat Gate near al-Aqsa Mosque amid tight Israeli restrictions.

Al-Hallaq’s body was withheld by the Israel police for one day before it was handed over to the Palestinian Red Crescent Society and later to his family.

Al-Hallaq, a young man with autism, was shot dead by Israeli police officers on Saturday morning while on his way to his special education school in the Old City of Jerusalem.
