Israel doing what it does best, killing Palestinians (again)
I love the policy Israel has for anyone they suspect as a ‘terrorist’ (and seeing as that seems to be anyone not Jewish, it’s a pretty broad term), whenever a ‘terrorist’ fires a rocket at Israel for, oh I don’t know, try 4 decades of occupation, Israel responds with random group punishment and state sanctioned assassinations. Seeing as the reason the Palestinians are attacking Israel with these glorified sky rockets is because the Israelis are occupying their land, and have done so for 4 decades, one might venture that group punishment might not really solve the problem, but Israel has NEVER let reason get in the way of their eye for an eye Palestinian aid regime.
Israeli-Palestinian clashes flare
Six Palestinians have been killed in Israeli army raids in the West Bank and an air strike in the Gaza Strip, in the worst flare-up of violence in weeks.
Five of the dead were in Jenin in the West Bank, where gunfire was reported to be continuing into the night. Also late on Saturday, an Israeli missile struck a car in the Gaza Strip, killing a suspected militant. The strike came shortly after rockets were fired from Gaza into southern Israel, slightly injuring two people. Three Palestinian militants, two from al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades and one from Islamic Jihad, were killed when Israeli undercover troops opened fire on their car in Jenin. A Palestinian policeman was also shot and killed by Israeli troops near Jenin, Palestinian witnesses said. The man, Mohammed Abed, was watching an Israeli arrest operation in the village of Kafr Dan from a roof when he was shot, Palestinian security forces said. The Israeli army said its soldiers had been under attack during the operation and had fired on a man armed with a rifle. Hours later, Israeli troops returned to the Jenin refugee camp, provoking a gun battle with local militants, Reuters news agency reported. Palestinian officials said a 17-year-old Palestinian girl had been shot dead by Israeli troops as she stood at a window in her house.
