Gaza – Ma’an – A Palestinian man was killed in what police say was a clan-related dispute in Gaza City on Friday night. The incident was unrelated to clashes in the southern Strip, sources said.

A man identified as Rashid Dughmush was transferred to the Ash-Shifa Hospital after unidentified gunmen opened fire on him in the Sabra neighborhood as he drove past them in a de facto government police vehicle. Police declined to say if Dughmush was working with them, or how he had otherwise come into possession of the car.

Director of ambulance and emergency services in the Palestinian Ministry of Health Muawiyah Hassanein identified the slain man and said he was in his 40s.

In September 2008 a fierce gunbattle broke out in the same neighborhood after de facto government security forces attempted to arrest three members of the Dughmush family. Medical sources said that 12 people were killed in the incident, and de facto police detained at least 15 in subsequent raids.

Members of the Dughmush family, some affiliated with the group Army of Islam, accused Hamas of using the killing of a police officer as pretext to wage war against the group.

clan fighting? la 7awlillah! why is it that everytime i hear of "clan fighting", the DUGHMOSH is always involved? Do they live in the stone age or what? Someone should tell them to stop making their own army/militia out of their family and work towards the greater good of Palestine instead of this!

The Dughmosh family are the most powerful family, and effectively run Gaza. Not even Hamas can stand against them. Perhaps they should join in a coalition administration, and this to put an end to the current issues and legitimise the cause of the Palestinian peoples. This land needs strong leadership, and not to be dictated to by the international community who have their own agendas and interests in Gaza, which may not necessarily be in the interests of Gaza. Why not open civilised discussions
