PA calls for inquiry into Qalandia killings

Aug. 26, 2013 12:31 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 28, 2013 7:55 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian Authority on Monday called for the formation of an international committee to investigate the killing of three Palestinians in Qalandia refugee camp.

PA spokesman Ihab Bsaiso told Ma'an that the international community has to put more pressure on Israel to stop violating the rights of the Palestinian people.

"The international community should not stay silent about the Israeli crimes against our people, and an inquiry committee should be formatted to investigate what happened in Qalandia refugee camp," the PA official said.

The Israeli government acts in a reckless manner without accountability, and the international community must take a strict position to stop these violations, Bsaiso said.

Israel has proved once again that it is not interested in the peace process, he added.

The Fatah movement in Jerusalem and Ramallah announced three days of morning for the three victims, calling on Palestinians to participate in the funeral processions in Qalandia refugee camp.

Israeli undercover forces killed three Palestinians overnight Sunday and injured at least 15 people during an arrest raid in Qalandia refugee camp.

Robin al-Abed, 32, was shot in the chest and died instantly, medics said. Younis Jihad Abu al-Sheikh Jahjouh, 22, was also shot dead.

Jihad Asslan, 20, died Monday morning from his injuries after being pronounced brain dead at a Ramallah hospital.
