Hundreds of Palestinians have held a massive funeral procession for a young man killed by Israeli troops in the northern part of the besieged Gaza Strip.


Mourners carried the body of Anwar Mohammed al-Mamlouk through Gaza City and to his final resting place.

The 21-year-old was shot dead on Friday when Israeli troops violated the truce and opened fire on Palestinians in Jabaliya.

Another Palestinian was also seriously injured in indiscriminate Israeli fire.

Tel Aviv has repeatedly violated the terms of a ceasefire it signed with Palestinians, which ended its eight-day war on Gaza in November last year.

At least three Palestinians have been killed and more than 50 others wounded by Israeli fire since the end of the offensive.

Israel launched a major military offensive against the besieged Gaza Strip between November 14 and 21, 2012, which left over 160 Palestinians, including many women and children, dead and about 1,200 others injured.

Gaza has been blockaded since 2007, which is a situation that has caused a decline in the standard of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty.
