Balata Refugees Give Qureia Scare

Mahmoud al-Khatib, who said he was one of a group of young men who fired at the building, said he acted out of anger and frustration at how officials treated his father, who was jailed by Israel for 21 years.

"When my dad came out of jail, the Palestinian Authority didn't help him with anything," he said. "Officials live in luxury and we, the ones who gave so much to Palestine, have gotten nothing.

"I reached a point where I'm willing to kill so I can take back my rights, my father's rights, and the rights of all those like us," he said.
