BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Palestinian activists near Bethlehem on Thursday commemorated the 7th anniversary of the death of four Palestinians killed by Israeli forces in 2008, a local committee said.

Muhammad Shahada, Issa Marzouq Zawahreh, Imad Kamel and Ahmad al-Balbul were gunned down in a targeted assassination by undercover Israeli forces in Bethlehem seven years ago.

Shahada was a member of Islamic Jihad, while al-Balbul was a member of Fatah's Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade.

Demonstrators hung pictures of the four men in the village of al-Masara and sprayed slogans on walls to honor their memory.

A march then set off from the village center in commemoration of the four men.
