PA police: Israeli army harboring 4 murder suspects

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Four Palestinians suspected of involvement in killing a man in Yatta south of Hebron have fled to an Israeli military camp that has refused to hand them to the Palestinian Authority, police said.

The four suspects are accused of killing Ali Ismail Ibrahim al-Adrah, 44, from Yatta earlier on Monday.

"The Israeli army, which is protecting the suspects, claimed that the four are Israeli soldiers who entered the camp in civilian outfits and are under (its) protection," a police statement said.

The statement explained that al-Ardah was struck with an iron rod and was taken to a hospital where he pronounced dead on arrival. After initial investigations four people who had argued with the man were sought but they fled to an Israeli military camp in Masafer Yatta, it said.

“It was not enough for the Israeli army to commit organized crime against our people … Now they work on harboring fugitives,” the statement concluded.

An Israeli military spokesman responded that eight people were detained and taken for questioning after an incident in a nearby town but did not elaborate.

The spokesman referred further inquiries to a police spokesman who did not immediately return calls late Monday.
