Could the death of Moussa Arafat have been aggravated by the incompetence or complicity of Palestinian Authority officials? Some details of the assassination have emerged from the Jerusalem Post.
- Eyewitnesses reported that some of the gunmen who participated in the raid on Arafat's two-story villa in the Tal al-Hawa neighborhood used armored vehicles belonging to one of the security organizations.
- the assailants stormed the house, shot Arafat in the legs and dragged him to the street, where they shot him at least 23 times in the head
- A West Bank Palestinian Military Intelligence officer, Maher Fares, told a press conference that he wondered why the security forces didn't react quickly to the attack on Arafat's home, which is located only a few meters away from the headquarters of the Preventative Security Force.
