GAZA, (PIC)-- Israeli occupation forces (IOF) mounting tanks advanced into eastern Gaza city on Sunday during the funeral procession of the wife of Palestinian health minister Basem Naim.
PIC reporter said that the advance was seen during the procession in which ministers in the government, MPs and national and Islamic leaders were present.
He pointed out that a number of participants did not continue to walk in the procession until the burial ground of Abir Naim, who passed away in Cairo on Saturday after two months of undergoing an operation to remove a cancerous tumor in her intestines.
An official participating in the funeral told the PIC reporter that the IOF provocation was a blatant violation on the sanctity of the dead and of human rights.
