IOF troops kill a Jerusalem taxi driver
[ 22/09/2009 - 01:40 PM ]

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)-- A Palestinian taxi driver from Jerusalem was killed on Tuesday morning by IOF troops manning a roadblock to the south of the holy city.

Israeli Radio reported that the IOF troops fired at the Palestinian taxi driver when he approached the Mifo Bitar military roadblock which lies near the Jewish colony of Bitar Elit near the Palestinian village of Husan west of Bethlehem.

Israeli Radio quoted an Israeli army spokesman as saying that Israeli soldiers opened fire at a suspected car that drove near Bitar Elit settlement west of Bethlehem in the West Bank after the driver neglected the soldiers' orders to stop at a roadblock for security check.

Witnesses said that 25-year-old Rabea' al-Tawil, a resident of east Jerusalem was driving his car as he crossed an IOF roadblock, adding that IOF soldiers stationed there opened fire at the car and killed him.

Only cars bearing PA number plates are stopped at IOF roadblocks, but cars bearing Israeli number plates do not have to queue and are not usually stopped at such checkpoints, as they have a special lane that they go through after slowing down a little.

Soldiers who man such roadblocks are usually very young, trigger happy and enjoy tormenting Palestinians before allowing them to continue with their journey

Israeli warplanes blast tunnels along borders with Egypt
[ 21/09/2009 - 10:47 AM ]

RAFAH, (PIC)-- Israel's warplanes fired four missiles at the Palestinian-Egyptian borders south of Rafah in the Gaza Strip at dawn Monday claiming to target three tunnels used to smuggle weapons into the Strip.

Local sources told the PIC reporter that the Israeli F-16s launched three raids targeting those tunnels.

The tunnels are used to supply Gaza with its needs of various goods after all Gaza crossings were closed by the Israeli occupation authority that only open them partially allowing in trickles of badly needed commodities.

The bombardment inflicted vast destruction in the targeted area and in a number of nearby buildings but no casualties were reported.

Hamas: Israeli crime aimed to foil Eid joy
[ 21/09/2009 - 10:17 AM ]

GAZA, (PIC)-- Hamas has charged the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) with trying to foil the Gaza people's joy over the Eidul Fitr with the crime committed in northern Gaza on the first day of the Eid.

Fawzi Barhoum, a Hamas spokesman, told the PIC on Sunday that the "Zionist crime" of shelling and killing two Palestinians reflected the "Zionist terrorist mentality and the spirit of revenge against civilians".

The IOA is exploiting the Arab silence and the former PA chief Mahmoud Abbas's acquiescence to attend a tripartite meeting with American president Barack Obama and Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu in New York on Tuesday to commit this crime, the spokesman elaborated.

He charged that the IOA is daily proving that it does not respect the sanctity of religious occasions, describing such an attitude as "state terrorism".

Another Hamas spokesman Dr. Sami Abu Zuhri urged the world community in a similar statement to the PIC on Sunday to assume its responsibility against such "Zionist crimes".

He also held the IOA fully responsible for consequences of such "barbaric crimes".

The Israeli occupation forces on Sunday morning shelled northern Gaza areas killing two resistance fighters and wounding four civilians.

For its part, the Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, asserted that it would continue along the path of martyrs until liberation of the occupied Palestinian lands.

It added in a statement on the occasion of the Eid on Sunday that the martyrs would continue to "guide us" along the road of sacrifice.

The armed wing called for tolerance and for restoration of national unity.
