Palestinians Hold Funeral for Man Killed by Israeli Army in West Bank.

Palestinians take part in the funeral procession of Jamil Abou Ayyash, 31, who died following a gunshot wound to the head during clashes with Israeli forces in the northern village of Beita.

Beita is the scene of regular demonstrations against Jewish settlement expansion, with residents demonstrating since May against the settlement outpost of Eviatar set up nearby without Israeli permission.

Excluding annexed East Jerusalem, about 475,000 Israeli settlers live in fortified communities in the West Bank, which is home to more than 2.8 million Palestinians.
