Number of Palestinians killed by internal disputes, crime up 50%

The state of anarchy and lawlessness in the West Bank and Gaza
Strip has claimed the lives of more than 300 Palestinians since
the beginning of 2006, according to statistics published Monday
by the Palestinian Independent Commission for Citizens' Rights.

According to the figures, 332 Palestinians were killed in
Palestinian Authority-controlled areas in the first 11 months of
2006 - a 50 percent increase compared to last year.

Most of this year's victims were from the Gaza Strip (236).

In 2005, 176 Palestinians were killed in internal disputes and
crime, while 93 were killed in 2004.
Regarding this year's victims, the group said 41 murders were
politically motivated and 88 were due to clan feuds. The
remaining victims were killed under various circumstances ranging
from armed robbery to personal vengeance and misuse of weapons.

An average of 26 Palestinians died each month in internal
disputes and crime this year, as opposed to a monthly average of
15 in 2005, the group said.

The number of Palestinian women slain by relatives in "honor
killings" slightly increased in 2006, with 27 cases reported so
far, compared to 26 last year.

Palestinian children have also fallen victim to the anarchy and
lawlessness, the group said. In the first 11 months of 2006, 33
children were killed, up from 28 last year.

The group noted that 95% of the killings were carried out by
gunfire or explosives.

The group also documented dozens of assaults on various
institutions, including courts, universities and colleges,
municipalities and media organizations.
