Palestinian Killed by Explosion East of Gaza City

Yesterday evening a member of Izzedeen El-Qassam Battalions was killed by an explosion. He was identified as Ahmad Abu El-Oun.

PCHR’s preliminary investigation indicates that at approximately 19:00 on Wednesday, 5 December 2007, the body of a member of Izzedeen El-Qassam Battalions, the armed wing of Hamas, was brought to Shifa Hospital. The dismembered body was identified as that of Ahmad Hassan Abu El-Oun (23) from Sheja’eya Quarter in Gaza City. He was killed by the premature explosion of a bomb he was planting to the east of Sheja’eya Quarter.

PCHR is concerned by the continued falling of victims by the misuse of weapons. The Centre calls upon the Palestinian National Authority to take the necessary steps to prevent the recurrence of these incidents.
