Committee acquits Hamas officers of Jihad death

July 3, 2013 10:03 A.M. (Updated: July 6, 2013 11:17 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- An inquiry committee tasked to investigate the death of a member of Islamic Jihad during a shootout with Hamas police on Tuesday acquitted the officers on any wrongdoing.

Hamas' interior ministry commissioned the inquiry last week following the death of Raed Qassim Jundeyeih, a member of Islamic Jihad's militant wing, the Al-Quds Brigades, who died after being shot by Hamas police officers.

The inquiry concluded that there was shooting from both police officers and Jundeyeih, and that police were firing warning shots and did not intend to kill or injure him.

It is likely that Jundeyeih was killed by a stray bullet, the report said.

The panel recommended that the commander of the police unit be disciplined for mismanagement and misbehavior towards citizens.

Islamic Jihad briefly severed ties with Hamas following the incident but restored relations days later after a series of good will measures by Hamas.
