GAZA (Ma’an) -- A drug dealer in Gaza who was reportedly wanted for more than a year, committed suicide by shooting himself on Thursday, during a raid by Hamas security forces to detain him in the Khan Yunis area of the southern Gaza Strip. 

Gaza Police Spokesperson Ayman al-Batiniji told Ma’an that police had received reports that a number of wanted men were in a house in Khan Yunis.

According to al-Batiniji, security forces immediately headed to the location to detain the men. Once forces arrived, the men in the house opened fire on security forces.

One person turned himself in, while a man, who al-Batiniji identified by the initials A.A., 39, was found “shot and killed on the ground,” with security forces saying he killed himself. 

Al-Batiniji said that a third wanted man was detained while searching the home, and a large quantity of drugs was seized.
