Report: Relative of Assassinated Hamas Activist is Missing

Published November 25th, 2000 - 02:00 GMT

A relative of slain Hamas member Ibrahim Bani Oudeh was reported missing following his assassination on Thursday in the West Bank city of Nablus, according to a report by the Israeli Ynet news site.  

Palestinian Authority forces, according to the report, suspect that Alam is a collaborator with Israel. 

The car, which originally belonged to Alam, was booby- trapped, reported Israeli radio on Thursday, denying Palestinian allegations that it was fired at from a helicopter. 

The killing of Ibrahim Bani Oudeh provoked the anger of thousands of Palestinians who took to the streets following his murder pledging revenge. 

His killing brings to mind the death of Yahya Ayash who was murdered on January 5th 1996; his relative was accused of collaboration as well, according to the Palestinian Information Center website --
