Jerusalem Post | Breaking News from Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World: "A leader of the ruling Fatah Party in Nablus was shot to death Tuesday in violence related to upcoming elections for the Palestinian parliament.

Nine gunmen, also affiliated with Fatah, pulled up in two cars to the house of Abu Ahmed Hassouna, 44, around 1:30 a.m. and began firing at posters of election candidates on his house, relatives said.

Hassouna leaned out a window, shouted at them to stop, and they shot him in the head, they said. He was rushed to a hospital, where he died shortly after. The gunmen fled, some by car and some on foot, after one of their cars broke down, relatives said.

Early this month, a Hamas supporter was killed in a firefight that erupted while rival factions were hanging election posters in Gaza City. Hamas blamed the ruling Fatah Party for the shooting."
