Israel Continues to Bleed Palestine

31 August, 2006

GAZA, August 30.— Eight Palestinians died Wednesday in the Gaza Strip in renewed attacks by Israel.
On the same day, the leader of the armed wing of Islamic Jihad in the West Bank, wounded a week before when Israeli agents tried to kill him, died of his wounds, reported AFP.
Medical sources said the Israeli army troops, which since Saturday are operating in the eastern Gaza City neighborhood of Sheja’eya, used their armored vehicles to machine gun seven Palestinians. They have also reportedly set fire to agricultural crops.
According to witnesses, Rami al Gharabli, 27, and Yasser al Gharabli, 25, tried to leave their homes surrounded by the Israeli tanks when they were shot dead.
