Rights group releases testimony from deadly settler attack

Feb. 2, 2011 7:33 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 3, 2011 11:08 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- An Israeli settler with a light-complexion, blond hair, wearing a Kippa, carrying a black backpack and a pistol on the side of his waist was the gunman who shot and killed Uday Qadous, testimony from Ramallah-based rights group Al-Haq revealed Wednesday.

Qadous, 19, was shot dead and found by his cousin on 26 January. Israeli forces said at the time that an investigation had been launched.

In Al-Haq's latest report, the organization said it collected further testimony from Uday's cousin, Omar, who heard the shot that killed his cousin.

When Omar went to look for Uday, Al-Haq reported, he found his cousin standing near an unpaved military road which connects that illegal Israeli settlement of Barkha to the nearby Israeli military base. A settler was standing opposite him, about 10 metres away; the two were quarrelling verbally.

As they moved away, Omar could no longer see them, the report said, but heard a bullet shot and saw the blond settler running away from the scene of the incident.

The cousin said he found Uday "lying on the ground, blood coming out of his mouth as he was making sneezing noises momentarily before he fell unconscious," the report said.

Omar ran toward the village, found two men to help carry Uday, and then came across a man with a horse who took the young man's body to an ambulance, and then to hospital, where he was declared dead.

The testimony updated an earlier report from the group, which it said needed clarifications.
