Hamas: Gaza City death was clan dispute unrelated to Rafah clash

Aug. 15, 2009 11:41 A.M. (Updated: Aug. 16, 2009 6:11 P.M.)
Gaza – Ma’an – A Palestinian man was killed in what police say was a clan-related dispute in Gaza City on Friday night. The incident was unrelated to clashes in the southern Strip, sources said.

A man identified as Rashid Dughmush was transferred to the Ash-Shifa Hospital after unidentified gunmen opened fire on him in the Sabra neighborhood as he drove past them in a de facto government police vehicle. Police declined to say if Dughmush was working with them, or how he had otherwise come into possession of the car.

Director of ambulance and emergency services in the Palestinian Ministry of Health Muawiyah Hassanein identified the slain man and said he was in his 40s.

In September 2008 a fierce gunbattle broke out in the same neighborhood after de facto government security forces attempted to arrest three members of the Dughmush family. Medical sources said that 12 people were killed in the incident, and de facto police detained at least 15 in subsequent raids.

Members of the Dughmush family, some affiliated with the group Army of Islam, accused Hamas of using the killing of a police officer as pretext to wage war against the group.
