A mysterious explosion killed one member of Fatah's armed wing, the Al-Aqsa Brigades, and injured two others just after midnight on Tuesday in the old city of Nablus, in the northern West Bank.Invariably, these "mysterious explosions" are "work accidents" where explosives meant to kill Jews go off a bit early.
Medical sources at Rafidia Hospital in Nablus confirmed the death of of Sulaiman Al-Qassas. They said he had arrived at the hospital in a coma.
Al-Aqsa Brigades spokesperson Mahdi Abu Ghazala told Ma'an accused "the Israeli occupation and collaborators" in an area known to be a meeting point for Al-Aqsa Brigades activists.
Notice also that the tens of thousands of PA "security forces" cannot seem to find and shut down terrorists even in places that they are known to hang out, and even when the terrorists belong to the same organization that rules the West Bank. And this is in Nablus, where the PA received kudos - and $1.3 million - from the US on how well it pretended to fight terrorists in the weeks leading up to Annapolis.
My count of Palestinian Arabs violently killed by each other this year now climbs to 590.
