Abdullah Shraidi (/ / ( listen) əb-DUL-ə SHRAY-dee) 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. 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. The fighting that occurred left 8 dead and 25 wounded. Shraidi died two months later from wounds sustained during the shooting after Fatah had agreed to a cease fire.
