GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A woman was killed late Saturday in a family feud in the central Gaza Strip, relatives told Ma'an.
Hijaziyya al-Louh, 65, died after being hit several times in the head during a brawl between her family and the al-Yaziji family, her cousin said.
Mahmoud al-Louh said an "old dispute" between the two neighboring families came to a head on Saturday, developing into a clash with rods.
Hijaziyya was killed while trying to prevent her children from getting involved in the fight, Mahmoud said.
Gaza police dispersed the brawl and opened an investigation into the incident, he added.
