Palestinian al-Jihad movement vows to continue resistance
Palestine-Israel, Military, 1/3/2004
Palestinians sources stressed that the Israeli occupation forces did not ultimately lift the siege imposed on the city of Jenin, in the West Bank. News reports said that the Israeli army removed the mobile barriers but continue blocking the northern entrance, and kept several barriers and iron gates at the entrance of towns and villages.
The reports said that the withdrawal is a mere formal measure and an Israeli propaganda, as the sufferings of the Palestinians continue in Jenin. Earlier, the Israeli occupation army announced lifting the siege imposed on Jenin since August 19, 2003.
The Israeli occupation forces detained 7 Palestinians in al-Yamoun town near Jenin, under the pretext of involvement in resistance operations.
In Gaza, however, the Islamic Jihad movement organized a demonstration in Jabalia camp for the refugees. It was attended by thousands to eulogize Muqllad Hameed, the commander of Saray al-Quds ( al-Quds group), the military wing of the movement.
The leaderships of the movement taking part in the demonstration stressed commitment to resistance regardless to massacres and assassination commited by Israel. Sheikh Nafez Assam said that the Palestinians gave several initiatives to reach a truce, yet, each and rvery time, Israel responded to these initiatives by escalating its aggression.
He indicated that the dialogue which was held by the Palestinian groups recently in Cairo under the Egyptian auspices was met by an Israeli military escalation, and the assassination of Hameed, stressing that things are getting more complicated with the continued aggression against the Palestinians.
