HEBRON- Oct 5, 2001- (IAP News/ Agencies) - Zionist occupation tanks and
troops thrust into the Palestinian West Bank city of Hebron on Friday,
seizing several strategic positions and killing 6 Palestinians.
Witnesses said about 50 tanks and armored personnel carriers, accompanied
by other military vehicles, rolled into Abu Sneineh and nearby areas under
cover of darkness.
The early morning invasion into the Abu Sneineh area witnessed the
storming of a civilian neighborhood by a heavily armed military force who
fired indiscriminately at residents.
Five of the confirmed dead are Hazem Amrou, 27, Kassem Abu Afifa, 48,

"defending itself" and he warned the United States not to "appease" the
Arabs at the Jewish state's expense.
This invasion has been demanded for months by the fanatic and fully armed
Jewish settlers in Hebron who are considered among the most extremist in
the West Bank. They make it a habit to terrorize and harass Palestinians
on a daily basis, and would love noting more than to see all Palestinians
forcibly removed from Palestine altogether.
