I found another Palestinian Arab "human rights" organization based out of Gaza, Al-Mezan, that again downplays internal PalArab security issues and emphasizes any perceived Israeli issues. But digging deep in the website I saw that they do pretend to keep track of internal security incidents, although without giving details so I can see which they are missing.

It is still instructive to see how the number of internal PalArab incidents soared as Israel left Gaza, even if the numbers themselves seem underreported:

Incidents of the state of insecurity and internal violence during the period 3/3/2002 to 24/8/2006

I suppose "Other" includes honor killings.

The main site will occasionally mention some internal security chaos but will downplay it or ignore it most of the time. For example, the internal fighting between Hamas and Fatah in the beginning of October left about 12-15 dead, but Al-Mezan had a single article mentioning two deaths and no follow-up. Meanwhile, every minor Israeli incident is highlighted.

This biased, anti-Israel site (which, along with other Palarab "human rights" organizations, supports PalArab human shields that HRW condemned) is funded by:

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 11 years and over 23,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
