JENIN, (PIC)– Unknown gunmen on Wednesday night killed deputy director of the Palestinian authority preventive security forces Hisham Al-Rakh in Jenin city.

The reason why he was targeted and who was behind the attack are still not known.

An informed source told the Palestinian information center (PIC) that Rakh was shot several times in his legs and chest and rushed to Martyr Khalil Suleiman hospital, but he died upon arrival at the hospital.

Rakh was notorious for his enmity towards the Palestinian resistance and in 2007 he boasted in a statement to Israel’s channel 2 about his cooperation with the Israeli side and handing it an officer who infiltrated into Jenin city and was spotted by citizens outside the grand Mosque.

Last May, he ordered the arrest of many Fatah gunmen during a large-scale security crackdown in Jenin district after the home of governor Qaddura Musa was attacked causing him a deadly heart attack.
