PALESTINIAN TERRITORIES. West Bank. April 4, 2013. A Palestinian protester uses a slingshot to throw a stone during clashes with Israeli soldiers. Unrest in the West bank city escalated following the funeral of Maysara Abu Hamdeya, a prominent member of the anti-Israeli resistance widely regarded as a national hero. The 64-year-old prisoner was serving a life term in an Israeli jail and suffering from throat cancer, for which he did not receive treatment.
