Gunmen kill Palestinian security chief in West Bank

* Hisham al-Rukh was attacked while driving home in the Jenin refugee camp, which has been the focal point of a broad sweep by PA security forces since May following an upsurge of violence led by criminal gangs and corrupt security officers.

* In May, Palestinian Authority forces launched a large scale security crackdown in the Jenin district after gunmen opened fire on the home of late governor Qaddura Musa, leading to a heart attack which caused his death.

* In April 2011, Juliano Mer-Khamis, the General-Director of the Freedom Theater, was killed in Jenin. Unknown gunmen inside the city's refugee camp opened fire on his car, Jenin police said at the time.

Gunmen killed a colonel in the Palestinian security forces early on Wednesday when they raked his car with gunfire in the northernWest Bank city of Jenin, local officials said.
