Hamas forms inquiry panel over Jihad affiliate's death

June 24, 2013 10:01 A.M. (Updated: June 26, 2013 12:36 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Hamas government in Gaza announced Monday it has convened an inquiry committee following the death of an Islamic Jihad member by Hamas police, an official said.

Hamas' interior ministry formed the panel, which will be headed by Marwan Abu Rass, a Palestine Legislative Council member and a relative of the deceased, the ministry's public relations chief Ibrahim Salah said.

Raed Qassim Jundeyeih, a member of Islamic Jihad's militant wing, the Al-Quds Brigades, died on Sunday after being shot a day earlier by Hamas police officers.

Police had gone to an address in Gaza City on Saturday to deliver summons orders to a member of the Jundeyeih family. Upon approaching the home, members of the family opened fire at the officers and Jundeyeih was wounded in the ensuing gunfight.

Islamic Jihad movement announced Sunday that it was temporarily suspending ties with Hamas, accusing Gaza authorities of being responsible for Juneyeih's death.
