Funeral procession starts for brothers murdered in Huwara terror attack

A funeral procession has begun for Hallel and Yagel Yaniv, the two brothers killed in yesterday’s terror attack in the West Bank Palestinian town Huwara.

The two, 21 and 19, were shot dead as they drove through Huwara.

The procession has begun from the northern West Bank settlement of Har Bracha, where they lived, and will end at the Mount Herzl cemetery in Jerusalem, where they will be buried.

Hundreds of family members, friends and supporters are taking part in the solemn event.

Along the procession path, people are waving Israeli flags as the family passes through.

Earlier, mother Esti said, “Words can’t describe this disaster. Instead of bringing children to the wedding canopy, we need to bury them.”

The IDF is conducting a manhunt for the gunman, who has not yet been apprehended.

After the attack, hundreds of settlers rampaged in Huwara on Sunday evening, setting fire to Palestinian homes and cars, shooting one man dead and wounding several others. A police investigation is ongoing.
