A local religious leader known for his anti-Hamas views was killed in a drive-by shooting outside a mosque Friday, shortly after delivering a sermon that criticized the Palestinian leadership. There was no claim of responsibility in the death of Adel Nasar, who was shot by gunmen outside the mosque in the Mughazi refugee camp in central Gaza. Nasar was not openly affiliated with any political party, but he was a well-known figure in the refugee camp and often spoke against Hamas in his sermons. He belonged to a small group called "The Sunna People," which advocates the imposition of Islamic law.
