GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Unidentified gunmen killed a 43-year-old man in Gaza days after his release from jail, local sources said Thursday.

The man was jailed after confessing to raping his 16-year-old daughter. Police had launched an investigation after the man's daughter gave birth to a daughter.

He was in jail awaiting a trial, but was released on Aug. 16 along with 98 other prisoners as a gesture by Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh to celebrate the Muslim festival Eid al-Fitr.

Days later, a group of gunmen dragged him from his home in the Nuseirat refugee camp and killed him on the outskirts of the camp, local sources told Ma'an.

The assailants then called the police who took the body for burial, the sources said.
