Palestinian killed in Israel after accusations of selling land to Jews — report
[IsraelTimes] Ahmed Salama was said to have denied involvement in West Bank land sales to Israelis, a capital offense under Paleostinian Authority law
A Paleostinian man killed in an Arab Israeli town over the weekend was involved in the sale of West Bank land to Jews, Paleostinian media reported Saturday.
Ahmed Salama, a resident of Jaljulia in central Israel, was shot Friday near his home and later pronounced dead at Meir Hospital in nearby Kfar Saba. Police have opened an investigation into the shooting.
Originally from the West Bank city of Qalqilya, Salama acquired residency in Israel through his marriage to an Arab Israeli woman, the Ynet news site said.
Citing an unnamed Paleostinian Authority source, Ynet reported Salama was wanted by the PA for selling land to Jewish settlers, which is punishable by death under the West Bank-based government’s penal code.

approve any death sentence, and he has not signed off on any executions since 2006.
Salama had denied involvement in such land sales, according to Ynet, which said he has previously also been suspected in Israel of illegal arms dealing and was detained by police on Wednesday for unknown reasons before being released.
