Abdullah Shraidi (About this sound pronunciation  ahb-DUH-lah SH-RAY-dee[needs IPA]) was the former leader of Osbat al-Nour whose near-fatal shooting on May 17, 2003 sparked violence between members of Osbat al-Nour and Fatah militia members in the Palestinian refugee camp of Ain al-Hilweh in southern Lebanon.[1] The shooting took place after the funeral of family relative Ibrahim Shraidi, a Fatah member gunned down by an unknown assaliant. The Shraidi's are a large clan in Ain al-Hilweh and members of the family can be found in opposing factions in the camp.[2] The fighting that occurred left 8 dead and 25 wounded.[1][3] Shraidi died two months later from wounds sustained during the shooting after Fatah had agreed to a cease fire.[3]
