At least 19 Palestinians dead and 150 injured in past 24 hours as zionist
army continues attacks on Palestinian refugee camps
Occupied Jerusalem, March 1, 2002 (IAP News) - Backed by tanks and
helicopter gunships, zionist ground troops on Friday moved deeper into the
Palestinian refugee camps of Jenin and Balata killing at least 5
Palestinians, including a 10-year-old girl killed while standing near the
window of her home, and injuring 30 others.
Three of those killed today include two brothers, Iyad and Yasser Sayes,
aged 25 and 18 respectively, as well as 33-year-old Mahmud al-Azab.
Also Friday, 7-year-old Palestinian boy Musa Talalka was killed by what
Palestinian witnesses said was indiscriminate zionist machine gun fire
toward a Bedouin encampment in the northern Gaza Strip.
"I was on my way back from Friday prayers when I heard the sound of heavy
machine guns from from the (nearby Jewish) settlement," said a resident,
Osama Malouh, 41. "I saw children outside, gathering around a boy who was
bleeding ... He died on the way to the hospital."
In addition, in Balata, 10 Palestinian homes were destroyed today,
including that of Suleiman Abu-Asab, 52, who said 12 soldiers broke down a
door and entered two buildings where seven families, including 30
children, live and left behind them a heap of destruction.
Yesterday morning, the zionist army launched a full scale attack on Balata
Refugee Camp, Nablus, and Jenin city and refugee camp in which at least 13
Palestinians were killed. Later that evening the zionists also attacked
Ayda and Beit Jala intensively with missiles, targeting the electricity
generators that feed both areas. According to witnesses at the scene, the
shelling was the most intense since the beginning of the Intifada, and is
targeting homes directly and randomly.
Widespread zionist attacks were also made yesterday on Hebron, Tulkarem,
Bethlehem, Tammoun, and Khan Younis, causing numerous injuries and
Since yesterday at least 19 Palestinians have been killed by the army of
the zionist state and more than 150 injured with widespread destruction of
homes and property.
Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat today accused Israeli Prime Minister
Ariel Sharon of "having planned to destroy the camps" of Jenin and Balata
and called on "the international community for rapid action before the
region explodes through these Israeli crimes."
