Explosion in minimarket in Jabalya refugee camp

 Field Update

  

On Tuesday morning, 02 April 2013, a bomb was detonated at the
entrance of a minimarket in Jabalya refugee camp in the north of the Gaza Strip,
destroying it and damaging 8 nearby houses and a car. This incident
demonstrates the proliferation of weapons and the ongoing violations of the
rule of law in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt).

 

According to investigations conducted by the Palestinian Centre for
Human Rights (PCHR) and the testimony of the minimarket’s owner, Ahmed Hassan
al-Jadili, at approximately 02:45 on Tuesday, 02 April 2013, a large explosion
occurred in the centre of Jabalya refugee camp in the north of the Gaza Strip. It
was discovered that a bomb had been detonated by unknown persons at the
entrance of  al-Jadili’s minimarket. The
minimarket was destroyed and 8 nearby houses and a car were damaged. Police
arrived at the scene and opened an investigation.

 

Al-Jadili informed PCHR that his shop had been targeted four months
previously, in a similar attack that caused minor damage. Police opened an
investigation at the time, but the perpetrators were not identified.

 

PCHR condemns this attack, which demonstrates the proliferation of
weapons and the ongoing violations of the rule of law in oPt. PCHR calls on the
Office of the Attorney General to investigate the incident and bring the
perpetrators to justice.
