Palestinian kills father, brother suspected of working for Israel as occupation troops shoot dead man in Rafah
A Palestinian man killed his brother and his father on Tuesday in a family feud over the brother's suspected role as a collaborator for Israel, an Israeli police spokesman said.
According to The AP, the fight started in the Omar family in the West Bank town of Baka al-Sharkia when one of the sons - an Israeli citizen who apparently works for Israel's security services - came to visit his father, police spokesman Doron Ben-Amo said.
One of the other sons allegedly killed the suspected collaborator and his father, Ben-Amo said. It remained unclear whether the father was killed intentionally or while trying to break up the fight, he added.
Elsewhere, Israeli troops killed a Palestinian fighter in Rafah, located in the southern Gaza Strip.
