Clan clash kills kid

Ma'an reports:
A Palestinian citizen called Isma'il Majaydah 17 was shot dead by a relative of his during a clan clash in the southern Gaza Strip city of Khan Younis.

The family said the killer was a member of the Hamas-affiliated Executive Force.
It is interesting that when 17-year old terrorists get killed by Israel, they are called "children," but when they get killed by Hamas, they are "citizens."

The PalArab self-death count, dormant for a week, now climbs up to 512 for the year.

Hamas also injured three Fatah members in Gaza, so while things are calmer, the violence is only a little below the surface.

UPDATE: A PalArab who was just released from prison on a sex-abuse charge (against a woman whose last name he shares, who herself was killed in an "honor killing" by her brother - is he the parent?) was murdered near Jenin. 513.
