Attuned to requests by Al-Bire residents, Barghouti decided to stop the shooting from within their apartment buildings towards the bordering settlement of Psagot. Unfortunately, Hussein a-Sheik, Barghouti’s rival for the Tanzim leadership, refused to obey the directive and continued the shooting with his militia supporters. The consequent increase in Palestinian casualties (according to JMCC seventy-five deaths during the first week alone – 9/29 – 10/6) dissuaded many Palestinians from continuing to participate in the confrontations, a fact that deeply frustrated the Tanzim forces for their lack of success in mobilizing the masses.

The tension between Barghouti and a-Sheikh intensified, the more influential Barghouti became. At times, a-Sheikh deliberately acted in opposition to Barghouti’s directives, with the consequence of heavier Israeli crackdowns, as was the case when the former’s supporters continued to fire on the settlement of Psagot, despite Barghouti’s decision to stop the shooting [19].
