The crowd of mourners, many of them young people and soldiers, gathered at Jerusalem’s Givat Shaul cemetery, where Eliyahu Kay was laid to rest. 

The 25-year-old Kay was pronounced dead in a Jerusalem hospital on Sunday after being wounded in a gunfire attack carried out by a Palestinian member of the militant Islamist movement Hamas. 

Another civilian and two police officers were injured, with the perpetrator shot dead by Israeli forces.

Israeli Public Security Minister Omer Bar-Lev said the “premeditated attack” was carried out by a Hamas operative living in the Shuafat neighbourhood of east Jerusalem, occupied and annexed by Israel in 1967
