1 Palestinian Killed and 4 Injured in Armed Personal and Clan Clashes in Rafah and Khan Yunis

One Palestinian was killed and four others were injured on Friday, 18 August 2006, in three incidents of armed personal and clan clashes in Rafah and Khan Yunis.  

PCHR’s preliminary investigation indicates that at approximately 18:30 shots were fired during a clash between members of Zannoun clan near the UNRWA clinic in Rafah. The shooting resulted in the death of Ismail Khalil Qishta (19). He was killed by a bullet to the abdomen by mistake as he was sitting in front of the house of his friend, Ra’ed Abdel Hakim Zannoun (22). Ra’ed was moderately injured by a bullet in the left hand. In addition, Ramzi Awad Zannoun (24) was moderately injured by a bullet in the left thigh. The victims were taken to Mohammad Yousef El-Najjar Hospital. Qishta was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital.

At approximately 20:00, Ahmad Zuheir Osrof, a 22-year old resident of Khan Yunis, was admitted to Naser Hospital in the city. He was moderately injured by two bullets in the legs. A gunman fired the bullets at Osrof during a dispute between them on the Khan Yunis beach.

And at approximately 22:00, a dispute between members of El-Shawwaf clan in Greater Abasan, east of Khan Yunis, escalated into an armed clash. Three members of the clan were moderately injured during the exchange of fire. They were taken to Naser Hospital for treatment. The injured are:

         Ala’ Suliman El-Shawwaf (20), injured by a bullet in the abdomen;

         Mohammad Hussein El-Shawwaf (27), injured by a bullet in the left thigh; and

         Bilal Abed El-Shawwaf (20), injured by a bullet in the shoulder.

PCHR is extremely worried over the continued security chaos that includes the use of arms in personal and clan disputes. The Centre strongly condemns these crimes that are taking place at a critical time for the Palestinian people in light of the Israeli military operation against the Gaza Strip. The Centre calls upon the PNA, represented by the Attorney-General, to investigate these incidents and bring the perpetrators to justice.
