Masked Palestinian gunmen left Sunday the PA governor office in the Gaza Strip Khan Younis city after receiving promises that the PA will set up a mechanism to compensate homeless Palestinian families.
The masked gunmen took over on Sunday the governor office, demanding immediate compensations for hundreds of residents who were left homeless after the latest Israeli raid of the city.
Even as the crisis ended in one hour, it indicates the serious state of lawless in the Palestinian strip, where armed groups can easily move to take law to their hands.
They around 35 gunmen took over the governor’s office to demand compensation from the PA to pay for food, rehabilitate the wounded and provide homes for homeless residents.
‘We need homes for the homeless,’ said Abu Mujahed, a spokesman for the gunmen.
Israeli troops dynamited two apartment buildings housing dozens of families last week, saying that they had been used by militants for launching attacks.
Mujahed said 160 families had been made homeless by the destruction of the apartments and previous Israeli raids in the Namsawi district of Khan Yunis, a militant stronghold.
