In Honor of Death

Palestinian relatives of Qassim al-Shinbari, a militant from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), mourn during his funeral in the town of Beit Hanoun in northern Gaza Strip 22 July 2010. Israeli shellfire killed two Palestinian militants, one of them al-Shinbari, and wounded six people, including a 10-year-old girl, in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday, Palestinian medical workers and an official with a militant group said. An Israeli military spokeswoman said soldiers opened fire on militants suspected of preparing to fire a rocket at them. A security source said the troops fired a tank shell.
