A senior member of Fatah, the party ruling the occupied West Bank, has been expelled from the mourning tent for a Palestinian slain by Israeli forces.
A video posted on social media shows Azzam al-Ahmad being kicked out of Friday's mourning procession in Jordan's capital, Amman, by relatives of Ahmad Jarrar, a 22-year-old who was killed last week by Israeli forces in the occupied West Bankafter a month-long manhunt.
The relatives accused al-Ahmad of complicity in Jarrar's death, citing the ongoing security coordination of the Fatah-ruled Palestinian Authority (PA) with Israel.
Attendees interrupted the speech of al-Ahmed, a member of Fatah's central committee, and demanded he left the mourning tent, the video shows.
Under the Oslo deals signed between Israel and Palestine in the 1990s, the PA is obliged to share intelligence with Israel about any armed resistance to the Israeli occupation in a practice known as "security coordination".
Jarrar allegedly killed Israeli settler Raziel Shevah in a drive-by shooting near a Jewish-only settlement adjacent to Nablus, a Palestinian city in the northern West Bank, on January 9.
On Tuesday, Israeli forces surrounded a building where Jarrar was hiding in Yamoun, situated in the Jenin area of the West Bank, and opened fire when he allegedly exited the building holding a firearm.
The anger over the PA's role in Jarrar's death highlights ongoing discontent among Palestinians over their government's reported role in security coordination with Israel, said Diana Buttu, a policy fellow at Al-Shabaka: The Palestinian Policy Network.
