Two Civilians Killed in a Family Dispute in Gaza

Two members of the al-Jamala family were killed yesterday evening in a family dispute in the Sheikh Radwan neighborhood in Gaza city.

According to investigations conducted by the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR), at approximately 19:30 on Tuesday, 25 August 2009, a family dispute took place between members of the al-Jamala family and those of the al-Bughdadi family in the Sheikh Radwan neighborhood, north Gaza city.  The dispute took place when a member of the al-Jamala family asked children from the al-Bughdadi family, who were playing with firecrackers in front of his house, to leave the area.  The issue developed into a dispute between the two families.  During the dispute one of the parties opened fire, killing two civilians:

1.    Ghazi Munir Deeb al-Jamala, 20, hit by a bullet to the heart; and

2.    Shadi Nabil Deeb al-Jamala, 23, hit by a bullet to the forehead.

PCHR is deeply concerned over increasing deaths and casualties resulting from the misuse of weapons in personal and family disputes. PCHR calls upon the Attorney-General’s office to investigate this crime and bring the perpetrators to justice.
