Israeli military police attack Shireen Abu Akleh's funeral
Israeli occupation forces have infiltrated and disrupted Abu Akleh's funeral procession with violence.
Al Mayadeen correspondent in occupied Al-Quds reported on a military crackdown and harassment of mourners during the funeral of Palestinian journalist and martyr Shireen Abu Akleh near the besieged French hospital.
Our correspondent said that the occupation forces stormed the hospital, confirming that the funeral procession was stormed and disrupted as the hospital got besieged.
She indicated that the large crowds of Palestinians gathered in front of the French hospital to participate in the procession, where Israeli occupation forces were heavily deployed in front of the hospital as they attempted to disperse and prevent crowds from walking the coffin through the streets.
Nonetheless, she reported, "crowds of mourners tried to storm the gate of the French hospital to enter the hospital despite the occupation's procedures."
Al Mayadeen's correspondent confirmed that the occupation soldiers attacked mourners at the funeral in occupied Al-Quds.
She explained that the mourners tried to bring the martyr's coffin back into the hospital to protect it from the attacks of the occupation soldiers, adding that "the mourners in front of the French hospital confronted the occupation forces, who used rubber bullets and tear gas canisters to disperse them."
Palestinian mourners pushed back against Israeli violence, as the military police attempted to snatch the Palestinian flag from the coffin while harassing protestors.
Arriving at the Roman Catholic Church in occupied Al-Quds, the Israeli forces prevented crowds of Palestinians from entering the venue to participate in the procession, which was met with heavy deployment.
