At approximately 19:30 on Sunday, 13 August 2006, the Palestinian Police in Deir El-Balah detained a Palestinian who confessed to killing his two sisters in an alleged "Honor Killing." The victims are Fatheya Kamel Kullab (27) and Amani Kamel Kullab (21). They were living in Jabalia refugee camp.So far, this incident has not been mentioned in a single English-language newspaper indexed by Google or Yahoo.
Palestinian police found the bodies of the two young women at approximately 02:00 on Thursday, 9 August 2006, in the Sawarha area, west of Nuseirat refugee camp in the center of the Gaza Strip. .... Sources at Shifa Hospital indicated that both were killed by gunshots. Each one was shot twice in the head. In addition, they were severely beaten and tortured before they were killed.
It is noted that the body of an 18-year old young woman was unearthed from a cemetery in Rafah on 30 June 2006. She was killed by relatives in an alleged "Honor Killing."
If you add the 18-year old victim from Rafah and a storekeeper shot yesterday in Illar, the Palestinian Arab Self-Death count since the beginning of the Israeli incursion is now at 54.
UPDATE: A Pakistani woman who was raped by her father is about to be killed in a similarly honorable fashion, and there is nothing you can do about it.
