- Palestinian sources confirmed that Israel is committing
a massacre in the Jenin refugee camp in the West Bank. Death toll in the
camp, following repeated Israeli attempts to enter the area has rose by
the hour. Medical sources are unable to confirm the exact number of dead,
but they say that dozens have been killed or wounded, mostly without any
medical attention. Eyewitnesses say that over 30 bleeding Palestinian,
in one spot in the camp are denied medical attention.
- Yasser Abed Rabbo was among several Palestinian officials
who called on the international community to interfere and to end the Jenin
massacre. The impoverished camp is very small in size yet very crowded
with Palestinian refugees who were expelled from their homes by Israel
throughout the years.
- Palestinian resistance has stood strong so far preventing
Israel from occupation their camp. Two Israeli soldiers were killed in
the fighting, several wounded and over 7 tanks destroyed.
