Civilian Killed and 3 Others Wounded, Including Child, in Familial Dispute in Nablus

On Saturday morning, 26 December 2015, a Palestinian civilian was killed and three others were wounded as part of the state of the proliferation of weapons, security chaos and assault on the rule of law in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt).

According to PCHR’s investigations, at approximately 11:00 on Saturday, 26 December 2015, a family dispute erupted between Halawah and Hamamah families in the Old City market in Nablus. Firearms were used in the dispute. As a result, As’ad Nasouh As’ad Hamamah (24) sustained a bullet wound to the back, due to which, he was taken to Rafidya Hospital for medical treatment. Palestinian security officers arrived and ended the dispute while reconciliation figures intervened to have the two families reconciled. In the evening, clashes re-erupted at Jaber café, east of the city, during a reconciliation meeting, in which firearms were used again. As a result, two civilians, including a child, who were present in the café, were wounded. The wounded persons were identified as Omer Abdullah Ahmed Dweikat (46), from Balatah village, and Ahmed Khaled Dweikat (16) from the same village. The first was hit with a bullet to the left leg and the other was hit with a bullet that entered the belly and exited the right side.

On the following day morning, clashes erupted between the two families as well but this time in the Traders’ Market in the city. As a result, Ashraf Mohammed Hassan Hussein (35), from Ein Beit al-Maa’ refugee camp, northwest of the city, was shot dead by a bullet to the chest.

The Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) strongly condemns the killing of Hussein, which is part of the state of proliferation of weapons and assault on the rule of law. Therefore, PCHR calls upon the Attorney General to seriously and transparently investigate the incident, publish the investigation’s results and bring the perpetrators to justice.
