Palestine-Israel, Military, 3/20/2004
Two Israeli soldiers were injured when one explosive went on in al-Mighraqa area in Gaza, while Israeli police sources said that one Israeli was killed when fire opened at him from a car in Jerusalem. The Israeli TV said that the man was exercising running sport in the French hill in Jerusalem was hit in the head and died upon his arrival in the hospital. The TV added that the police started mopping up operations in search of the attackers.
Meantime, One Palestinian died because of wounds he had received during an incursion operation carried out by the occupation forces in Rafah camp to the south of Gaza two days ago.
The director of Rafah hospital said that Ayman Abdul Karim Abu Hashem ( 23 year old) died yesterday because of his wounds he had by the fire of the Israeli forces in the camp.
Meantime, Ezz eddine al-Qassam group, the military wing of the Hamas movement claimed responsibility for blowing up of an Israeli tank in al-Mighraqa village to the south of Gaza which the Israeli sources admitted wounded two soldiers inside it.
This announcement coincided with the re-incursion of the occupation forces in the sector and its breaking in of the same village. Seven Palestinian were wounded as a result of intensive fire cover coupled with breaking in into the city.
A Palestinian security spokesman said that the occupation forces demolished during the operation one house owned by the activist in Hamas Maysara Hassan.
At least 8 Palestinians were killed in Gaza since intensifying the air raids and the Israeli incursions in the sector on Tuesday and Wednesday following the Fedyaeen operation carried out in Ashdod port to the south of Israel.
Earlier, confrontations erupted between hundreds of Palestinians and the occupation forces during two demonstrations that took place on Thursday against the separation wall in villages to the west of Ramullah.
The occupation soldier fired rubber bullets and tear gas to disperse the demonstrators. The demonstrations coincided with the Israeli bulldozers uprooting of olive trees to build the separation wall, despite the decision of the Israeli supreme court to suspend construction works in that area.
At the political level, a UN official expressed hope that the Israelis and the Palestinians will agree to convene a meeting between the Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon and his Palestinian counterpart Ahmad Qurei'.
The UN assistant secretary general for political affairs, Danilo Turk, said that the bloody bottleneck in the region can be eliminated only when the two sides meet at more than one level.
Turk considered that it is the interests of all- the Israelis and the Palestinians and members of the International group- to work instantly and seriously in order to implement the Roadmap plan and reach a just and comprehensive peace.
The meeting set between Qurei' and Sharon was canceled following the twin operations in the Israeli Ashdod port last Sunday.
