The Curse of Khaled Madi

Reuters reports:

Israeli troops shot and killed a Palestinian grocer and a teenage student – both carrying the same name – in separate incidents in the West Bank and Gaza Strip on Monday.

Palestinian security sources said Khaled Madi, 16, was helping his father in the family fields in southern Gaza during a school holiday when Israeli soldiers opened fire on them killing the boy. Medics said Madi was shot in the head.

Israeli military sources confirmed that soldiers on patrol near the Morag settlement in southern Gaza fired “warning shots” and said they were checking if anyone had been hit.

Later on Monday, Israeli undercover soldiers shot dead a 30-year-old Palestinian grocer in the West Bank town of Salfit while trying to arrest a man suspected of being a member of a militant group linked to Palestinian President Yasser Arafat’s Fatah movement.

Medics said the grocer, also named Khaled Madi, was one of three people wounded in the incident, including the suspected militant, and that he died of a critical gunshot wound to the abdomen while on the way to hospital.

Strange coincidence – or perhaps the PLO Arab propoganda machine is having a hard time keeping track of the names of fictitious head-injury victims.

Just a thought.
