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.
