The Hamas terror group calls for Palestinians to participate in tonight’s funeral for Walid al-Shari, who fell into a coma following injuries sustained during clashes with Israeli troops at the Temple Mount in April.

“Widespread participation is loyalty to the blood of those martyred and a challenge to the occupation,” says Mohammad Hamada, a Hamas spokesperson.

Al-Sharif died yesterday after several weeks at Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem. He was the first Palestinian killed at the Al-Aqsa holy site since 2017, when three Palestinian gunmen shot and killed two Israeli police officers before being shot dead.
