Akram Ibrahim Abu Sbaí, member of the ISM regional committee Jenin and co-founder of one of ISMís first permanent presences was killed by members of Islamic Jihad in the north Palestinian city of Jenin.
Akram was killed on duty, when he tried to smooth tensions between members of Palestinian security forces and members of Islamic Jihad.
Palestinian police officers and members of the security forces reported the following:
At approximately 10 pm Palestinian security forces stopped a car on Mustashfa street, near Jeninís governmental hospital. The car driver, member of Islamic Jihad's Al-Quds Brigade couldnít show any valid registration papers for the car and so verbal clashes erupted between the people in the car and the security forces. When Akram, also a member of the security forces (Al Aksa Martyrs Brigade under Fatah) joined the scene in order to smooth the clashes, he was shot twice in the chest by one of the men, sitting in the car. He was brought to Jeninís governmental hospital and passed away as a consequence of his injuries.
Akram was buried on the graveyard of Jenin refugee camp at 3.30 pm.

Translation: Fromthe Koran: "Allah forbids you not, with regard to those who fight you not for (your) Faith nor drive you out of your
homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them: for Allah loveth those who are just." To the great Palestinian people in whose blood
is written the symbol of steadfastness and resistance. You who have broken the conspiracies with the stone of your steadfastness. You who have
been a thorn in the side of the occupation and a dagger in the chest of the spies and collaborators. While the Israeli attacks continue against
our people as does the criminal planning in the region and the politics of facts on the ground by building the separation
apartheid wall, confiscating more and moreland to expand the settlements, and separating the Palestinian peopleinto 3 cantons. Our people
in Bil'in, Beit Sira, Abud, and other Palestinian communities face this oppression by continuing a peaceful popular Intifada against the
occupation. The occupier uses violence and every kind of weapon to stop these demonstrations. Here our friends from allover the world standing
in solidarity with our people. To stop the crimes of the oppressor they participate in the popular demonstrations. They send our message to
their people and tell them what is happening to the Palestinian people. We in the al- Aqsa Martyr Brigades issue these points:
1- We give our support to the international solidarity and the peace activists, and we are taking care that they are not affected
in anyway or by anyone. 2- We call the Danish people to continue their solidarity with our people and call on their government to
apologize to the Muslims. 3- We call all the countries around the world to stand by their responsibilities by taking effective
steps to force Israel to implement international law and by preventing Israel's criminal planning in the region. The general leadership of
the al-Aqsa Brigades in Palestine. ___________________
