Major Fathi Freihat, Mahmoud Zayyid and Wael Ghanem, members of Force 17, a security service operating under Palestinian Authority, were sentenced to death by firing squad on 3 July 1997. They were tried by a Special Military Court in Gaza and found guilty of unintentionally killing Nasser Radwan, after arresting him.
