The mother of Martyr Ahmed Manasrah (i.e., Palestinian rioter who was shot by an Israeli soldier) gets a last farewell look before his burial.”

The images show the mother of rioter Ahmed Manasrah kissing the face of her dead son during his funeral. Manasrah’s body is wrapped in a Palestinian flag and a keffiyeh (Arab headdress), and a large crowd is participating in the funeral.
