Arab woman and child join PalArab self-death count (23)

The number of Palestinian Arabs killed by other Arabs since the incursion began continues to grow, now at 23 by my count. As the mainstream media continues to concentrate on Israel killing terrorists, they continue to ignore the number of Arabs who kill each other all the time.
Yesterday, Bara’ Jamal Abu Jarbou’ (11) and Nema Abdel Rahman Hamad (45) from Nuseirat refugee camp were killed and 7 others were injured in a clan clash. And today, 3 other Palestinians were injured in a clan clash in the town of Bani Suheila, east of Khan Yunis.
For some reason, Reuters and AP cannot seem to find any photographers to cover these incidents. For some reason, the funeral of the 11 year old girl is not newsworthy, but the heartbreaking pictures of mourners at the funerals of murderous terrorists get plenty of coverage by the wire services:

What else can you expect from the exclusively Arab reporters and photographers employed by Reuters and AP and AFP in the Gaza Strip? They have an agenda as well, and it does not include any mention of intra-Arab violence.
