West Bank: PA forces fire tear gas at fighter’s funeral in Nablus

Palestinian Authority (PA) security forces have fired tear gas at mourners at the Nablus funeral for one of the six Palestinian men killed in an Israeli raid on Tuesday in Jenin. The fighter had been a member of Hamas, and had the Palestinian group’s flag draped around him during the funeral on Wednesday, which led to a dispute with the Palestinian Authority, which is dominated by Hamas’ rival, Fatah. Thousands of people attended the funeral in the Askar refugee camp for Abdelfattah Kharousheh, who was from the camp. Al Jazeera’s Nida Ibrahim reports from the occupied West Bank.
