Jenin District Governor Kadura Musa died on Tuesday night of a heart attack, shortly after armed attackers opened fire on his home.
On Tuesday night, a number of assailants took positions outside Musa’s home, before opening fire. The governor’s bodyguards returned fire, and Musa himself came out of his house and fired a number of shots into the air.
Later on, after complaining that he felt ill, he was taken to the hospital, where he died.
The assailants are believed to be members of the family of a Palestinian man who was killed by Palestinian police two weeks ago.
