HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Unidentified gunmen shot and killed a 60-year-old man in Hebron on Wednesday after robbing him, relatives and security sources said.

Jawad Omran al-Qawasmi, who owned a money exchange in Hebron, was shot dead in the Wadi Abu Kteileh area of the city on his way to work, his family told Ma'an.

The assailants stole cash from al-Qawasmi and fled the scene, the relatives said.

Police are investigating the shooting.

A source close to Mahmoud Abbas said the president had called al-Qawasmi's family to offer his condolences.

Abbas has ordered the Minister of Interior to form a special commission to find the perpetrators as soon as possible, the official told Ma'an.
