Palestinian Killed in Nablus in a Personal Dispute 

PCHR’s preliminary investigation indicates that at approximately 22:00 on Tuesday, 4 September 2007, gunmen wearing military uniforms and traveling in a car intercepted another vehicle carrying 4 passengers, among them Amer Hashem Allam (33) and his brother Nader. The incident took place near Oreef village intersection. The passengers in the second car were returning home to Einabous village from the village of Madama. Eight gunmen got out of the car and fired at the second vehicle. Amer Allam was hit by several bullets in different parts of his body. He was taken to Rafedia Hospital in Nablus; however he died of his wounds shortly after admission to the hospital. The Centre learned that the killing was motivated by a personal dispute.

PCHR is extremely concerned by the continued falling of victims by the use of weapons in personal and clan clashes. The Centre reiterates the call to the PNA, represented by the Attorney-General, to investigate these crimes and prosecute the perpetrators.
