Muhammad’s Funeral

The Day of Muhammad’s Funeral

This has been the daily situation every day in East Jerusalem and other occupied areas since Muhammad Abu Khdeir had been found burned alive in the Jerusalem forest. The killing of Muhammad was as retaliation for the murder of the three Isreali settlers.

These photos were taken on Friday the fourth of July, the day of Muhammad’s funeral.
