Ammar Adili: Israeli forces fire at Palestinians demanding return of slain man's body
Ammar Adili was killed on Friday by a member of Israel's border police in Huwara, a town near Nablus. A video of the 22-year-old being shot four times was posted on social media.
Palestinians in Adili's village of Osarin, near Nablus, protested on Monday to demand the return of his body, which was seized by Israel, The New Arab's sister site Al-Araby Al-Jadeed reported.
Osarin village council chief Mubarak Abdel Hadi said: "Confrontations broke out after a sit-in in front of the house of the martyr Ammar Adili to demand the recovery of his body."
He said that young men had closed off the road reserved for Israeli settlers near the village and set rubber tyres alight.
"Israeli forces chased them [back] into the village," Abdel Hadi said, adding that this led to injuries.
Ahmad Jibril, the director of the Palestinian Red Crescent accident and emergency service in Nablus, told Al-Araby Al-Jadeed that one young man was hit in the face with a tear gas cannister, while another was wounded in the shoulder with a rubber coated bullet.
Jibril said 13 others suffered from breathing issues due to tear gas exposure.
Israeli authorities routinely keep the corpses of Palestinians they allege were killed carrying out "terror" attacks, often failing to provide evidence that the killed Palestinians had actually carried out attacks.
