The funeral of Abu Akle will take place today in the city of Jerusalem. According to Al Jazeera, the event will begin at the French St. Louis Hospital in the occupied Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in East Jerusalem and end at the Jaffa Gate in the Old City, where a funeral ceremony will take place in the afternoon. Thousands of Palestinians are expected to take part in the increased Israeli police presence.

Israel calls for full investigation before drawing conclusions

For its part, Israel, in addition to resuming raids in the occupied West Bank, has called for a joint investigation with the Palestinian Authority, demanding that the bullet be handed over for forensic examination to determine who fired it.

Each side questions the conclusion made by the other side, and there seems to be no way for third parties to agree to participate in the investigation. The Palestinian Authority and Qatar-based Al Jazeera accuse Israel of deliberately killing Abu Akle.
