Woman Shot Dead by Her Brother

 

Field Update 

 

Yesterday, 14 May 2018, a woman was killed after her brother opened fire at her in Nablus.  This incident is part of the state of proliferation of weapons and assault to the rule of law in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt).

According to investigations conducted by the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR), at approximately 17:20 on Monday, 14 May 2018, Faraj ‘Abdullah Barahmah (30) from al-Bathan village, north of Nablus, took his sister Amnah (40) to the Parks area on the main street in the village after forcing her into the rear seat of his car.  He then shot her dead with 10 bullets from his own pistol.  Barahmah then handed the body of his sister to Nablus police station and then surrendered.

Loay Zreiqat, Spokesperson of the Israeli police, said to media that the police and public prosecution opened an investigation into the killing of the woman and the public prosecution decided to keep the body and refer it to the Forensic Medicine Institute.

PCHR hereby condemns the killing of Barahmah and calls upon the competent authorities to take all necessary measures to put an end to the phenomenon of proliferation of weapons and maintain civilians’ security and safety.
