Tragedy struck on Thanksgiving break for three Palestinian American college students who were targeted in a shooting in Burlington, Vermont. The victims, identified as Hiham Awartani, Tahseen Ali, and Kenan Abdulhamid, were all attending prestigious universities such as Harvard, Brown University, and Trinity University.

No Shooter Identified Yet

The motive behind the shooting remains unknown as police have yet to identify a shooter. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has offered a $10,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the attack.

Arab American Anti-Discrimination Committee Calls for Hate Crime Investigation

The Arab American Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) has called on law enforcement to investigate the shooting as a hate crime. In a statement, ADC National Executive Director Abed Ayoub expressed concern over the rise of anti-Arab and anti-Palestinian sentiment, stating that this incident is another example of that hate turning violent.

The victims were transported to the University of Vermont Medical Center, where two of them remain in intensive care. The extent of their injuries is still unknown at this time.

Our thoughts are with the victims and their families during this difficult time.
