A Further Victim of the Security Chaos

One Killed and Four Injured by Unknown Gunmen in Two Separate Incidents

In the pre-dawn hours of Wednesday, 24 May 2006, Salem Hamdan Qudeih (22) was killed and two others were injured by shots fired at them by unknown gunmen, after they had been kidnapped from the town of Greater Abasan, east of Khan Yunis.  In a separate incident, two Hamas activists were injured by shots fired at them in Gaza City.

PCHR’s preliminary investigation indicates that at approximately 05:15 on Wednesday, masked gunmen in two cars (Skoda cars) intercepted three Hamas activists from the Qudeih clan in Greater Abasan.  The three men had been riding bicycles near El-Rowad field in Greater Abasan.  The gunmen kidnapped the three activists, bound them and took them to an unidentified location.  They beat the gunmen with sticks and beat their legs with sharp objects.  They then dumped the activists near Asfour fuel station on the main street of Greater Abasan.  The gunmen fled the scene after firing at the bound activists.  At approximately 06:00, citizens passing in the area found the three injured activists and took them to Naser Hospital in Khan Yunis.  Two were injured seriously and at approximately 09:15, medical sources at the hospital pronounced Salem Qudeih dead.  He had been hit by bullets to the pelvis and kidneys.  The other two activists who were injured are:

         Salah Abdallah Qudeih (20), injured by bullets to the legs.  He was transferred to Shifa Hospital due to the severity of his injuries; and

         Na’el Fawzi Qudeih (22), injured by bullets to the right leg. His injuries are moderate.

And at approximately 02:30 on Wednesday, unknown gunmen traveling in two white Subaru’s fired at two Hamas activists in Jala’ Street, Gaza City.  The activists returned fire but the gunmen fled the scene after injuring the Hamas activists.  The injured were taken to Shifa Hospital in Gaza City.  Medical sources informed PCHR’s fieldworker that the injured activists were:

         Zakaria El-Hallaq (23), injured by a bullet to the forearm; and

         Mohammad Abed El-Khor (24), injured by a bullet to the leg.

PCHR is gravely concerned over the escalating internal violence and use of weapons by armed groups and individuals, which are further aggravating the security chaos currently plaguing the Occupied Palestinian Territory.  The Centre calls upon the Palestinian National Authority, represented by the Attorney-General, to investigate these incidents and bring the perpetrators to justice.
