Palestinian Shot Dead at Southern Camp
A Palestinian man was killed on Saturday over a dispute on the implementation of an infrastructure project at the Rashidiyeh camp near the southern city of Tyre, the state-run National News Agency reported.
NNA said Ahmed Majed Awad, 32, died after Ghanem Daher, also a Palestinian, opened fire at him.
Daher was injured in the gunfight, said the agency.
Following the murder, the Palestinian factions and the camp's personalities held a meeting to contain the incident, NNA added.
After the meeting, the Fatah Movement leadership in Tyre said the killing at the Rashidiyeh camp was an individual act with neither political nor security reasons.
It said the conferees contacted the families of the two men “to help them overcome the repercussions of the dispute.”
