Drive-by Shooting Episode: 'Palestinan' Killed; Wife Injured


A Palestinian man was shot dead and his Egyptian wife was critically injured Friday by unidentified gunmen in the northern Sinai Bedouin town of Sheikh Zuweid, according to Egyptian security sources.

Ahmad Al-Marzouq Abu Bakra, 35, and his wife Yusriya Shehata Ahmad, 30, were travelling in their private car in the al-Ajra neighborhood of Sheikh Zuweid before the vehicle came under heavy fire, according to a security source. The source confirmed to Ma’an that the car flipped over after the driver received a deadly gunshot to the head.

As far as I know, there are no 'settlers' nor even Israelis living in Sheikh Zuweid.

And incidentally,

An American Jewish college student, Andrew Driscoll Pochter, 21, a native of Chevy Chase, Maryland, was killed in Alexandria, Egypt on Friday...Pochter, one of three people killed in Friday’s clashes, was stabbed to death by a protester, his family said...Pochter was later identified by his parents and university, Ohio’s Kenyon College, as an intern at AMIDEAST, a nonprofit organization devoted to promoting education in the Middle East and North Africa.
