A Palestinian family that refused to allow terror operatives to place a Kassam rocket launcher in its yard paid a heavy price on Friday: The 15-year-old son of the family was murdered, while five other family members were seriously injured by the terrorists' gunfire.

The incident began this morning when a seven-member terror cell that belongs to the Fatah's Resistance Committees arrived at one of the homes in the northern Gaza Strip town of Beit Hanoun.

After the family's refusal to allow the terrorists to place the launcher on their ground, a heated exchange of words escalated into shoving matches. The armed men then opened fire at the 20 family members, killing the youth, Hasan Za'anin and injuring five others.

It is estimated that the Za'anin tribe, one of the largest in the area, would try to avenge his death.
