Israeli police clashed with Palestinian protesters in occupied Jerusalem Friday as thousands of people converged on a cemetery for the burial of a Palestinian teenager, who Palestinians say was killed by Israeli extremists in a suspected revenge attack.Palestinian militants fired at least six rockets and mortar shells toward Israel, but that was a sharp decline from recent weeks and no retaliatory Israeli airstrikes were reported a day after the Israeli military rushed additional forces to its southern border with the Gaza Strip because of intensifying barrages. During the procession, masked Palestinians threw rocks at Israeli police officers on duty nearby who responded with stun grenades, spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.Palestinians have accused Israeli extremists for killing Abu Khdeir, saying it was a revenge attack for the deaths of the three Israeli teens.The military says that Palestinian militants have fired some 140 rockets at southern Israel in recent weeks.Hundreds of Palestinians threw rocks at police who responded with stun grenades, police said.
