      Zionist Occupation Troops Raid Hebron, 6 Palestinians killed

      Web source: http://www.iap.org/

      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,
      Raed Abu Daud, 23, Ziad Kafisha, 27, and Nidal Kafisha, 35.

      During the raid, the occupation army demolished, shelled and rocketed
      homes. Troops ousted residents from 15 houses, positioning themselves on

      Haaretz reported this morning that: "Palestinian sources said six were
      killed, among them four civilians, and dozens others were injured. They
      said that there were probably many other wounded Palestinians, including
      some dead, but the IDF gunfire prevented the Palestinians from reaching
      them. The Palestinians say that among the buildings now under IDF control
      is an elementary school in the Abu Sneina neighborhood. They also said
      that the IDF had placed a curew on all the areas they had entered."

      The Associated Press reported that : "Hundreds of people, many of them in
      tears, gathered at Hebron's hospital, where the casualties were taken."

      Eye witness accounts on Aljazeera TV stated that the invading occupation
      forces fired indiscriminately at anything that moved, and the network
      showed pictures of many civilians writhing in agony being taken into the

      Sharon said U.S. efforts to win Arab support for a war on terrorism after
      the suicide attacks on New York and Washington would not stop Israel
      "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.

      "First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out because I was
      not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not
      speak out because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the
      Jews, and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for
      me, and there was no one left to speak for me." - Pastor Martin Niemoller
