And another 2007 PalArab violent death

2008 has been relatively quiet since New Year's, but I still keep finding out about 2007 deaths. From Ma'an:
A corpse found in a landfill in near the West Bank city of Hebron has still not been identified after nine days of investigation, police sources said.

The body was found in the town of Nuba, west of Hebron.

Hebron Police Chief Majid Hawari said no one has reported a missing person in the area. The police plan to take a DNA sample before burying the body.
So the 2007 total goes to 612.

UPDATE: At least it doesn't appear to be an honor killing.

From PalToday (autotranslated):
Palestinian medical sources reported that a Palestinian woman was killed by stray bullets during the evening today, Monday, as she and her husband were passing near a quarrel between two families in the path of Saladin leading Central Province [of Gaza.]

The sources said that Nagwa Abdel Al, 45 years old, mother of nine children, arrived in the city of Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital Deir el-Balah central sector lifeless body after it was hit by two bullets in the chest and neck.
This makes the 2008 self-death count 4 for 2008.
