Israeli tanks storm into Jenin, One Palestinian killed, Sharon for amending US road-map
Palestine-Israel, Military, 10/26/2002
Some 25 Israeli tanks backed by armored vehicles and on-foot patrol on Thursday evening broke into the city of Jenin and its suburbs including Jenin camp and started to open its fire and carried out vast mopping up operations from one house to another under the pretext of arresting members of the Islamic Jihad movement -- the organization which claimed responsibility for the recent Palestinian operation at Karkour crossing where some 14 Israelis were killed, and other 50 wounded.
The Israeli radio said that strong confrontation took place between the Palestinian resistance and the invading Israeli forces which detained 8 Palestinians in various parts of the West Bank, while 3 of Jenin citizens were wounded. The armed settlers attacked the Arab farmers near Jalaad settlement while they were cultivating their olive harvest.
The Palestinian Tawfiq Brekeih died of his wounds he had two weeks earlier by the Israeli tanks fire at Rafah camp, while thousands of Palestinians demonstrated in Gaza and Rafah in protest of the events that took place in al-Negev prison on Thursday evening in which several Palestinian prisoners were wounded. The demonstrators took the streets of Rafah chanting slogans denouncing the Israeli policies and called for a continued Intifada in confrontation of the Israeli occupation and practices.
Meantime, the Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon called during his meeting with the Assistant of the US secretary of state William Burns on Thursday for introducing amendments to certain items of the settlement plan proposed by Burns and was given the name of "road map," especially the security side of the plan.
