Clashes renew between Palestinians and Israeli troops in Silwan district

Fierce clashes broke out once again on Friday afternoon between Palestinian young men and the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) in Silwan district of occupied Jerusalem as Jewish settlers continued their savage attacks on Palestinians and their property in different West Bank areas. The Hebrew radio said that one Israeli soldier from the border guards was slightly injured when a Molotov cocktail was thrown at him during the clashes. Meanwhile, armed Jewish settlers attacked on the same day different West Bank cities under military protection. They stormed Yasuf town, near Salfit city, and attacked homes and Palestinians. Israeli troops helped the settlers during their attacks and fired tear gas grenades at the residents who tried to defend themselves. A group of settlers intercepted a Palestinian car at Za’tara crossroads, east of Salfit city, and showered it with stones causing considerable damage to it. In Tubas city, Jewish settlers from Maskiot settlement seized under military protection vast tracts of Palestinian lands in Wadi Al-Maleh, north of Jordan valley, and planted them with some olive trees. The Israeli troops that escorted the settlers expelled the Palestinian owners from their lands, although they demonstrated official documents proving their ownership.

Two Palestinians killed in Israeli raids

 

Two Palestinians have been killed and several others injured after Israeli forces struck different targets in the Gaza Strip, a report says.

According to Palestinians, the incidents took place early Saturday in Gaza. Medic also said that five Palestinians were wounded during the Israeli air strike, AFP reported. Israeli jets targeted neighborhood of Zeitoun, on Gaza City’s outskirts, a Palestinian emergency services official said. On Wednesday, Israeli warplanes fired two missiles at a security compound in Gaza and killed three Palestinians and wounded four more, according to Palestinian medics. More than 1,400 Palestinians were killed during the three-week Israeli land, sea and air offensive in the impoverished coastal sliver during the winter of 2008-2009. The offensive also inflicted $1.6 billion damage to the Gazan economy. A United Nations inquiry led by the former South African judge, Richard Goldstone, detailed what investigators called Israeli actions “amounting to war crimes, possibly crimes against humanity,” during Israel’s offensive against the Gaza Strip. Israel also laid an economic siege on the Gaza Strip in June 2007 after Hamas took control of the enclave. The blockade has had a disastrous impact on the humanitarian and economic situation in the Gaza Strip. Some 1.5 million people are being denied their basic rights, including freedom of movement, and their rights to appropriate living conditions, work, health and education. Poverty and unemployment rates stand at approximately 80 percent and 60 percent, respectively, in the Gaza Strip.

Gaza farmers work under Israeli fire

 

Many Palestinian farmers, including women and children, have come under Israeli fire along the so-called “buffer zone” in the northern and eastern parts of the Gaza Strip over the past two years.

The Israeli-defined buffer zone falls within Palestinian lands, and the Israeli forces deployed on the outskirts do not hesitate to fire at a moving target that wanders about, a Press TV correspondent reported from Gaza on Friday. On Thursday morning, residents close to the border woke up to a shower of papers falling from the sky, the regular occurrence of leaflets dropped from Israeli F-16’s over towns and cities close to the border. Palestinian people gathered to read the message, but most knew what to expect: Warnings from the Israeli military telling these agricultural communities to stay away from their land, which lies within 300 meters of the border. Prohibited access to farming land has had severe repercussions for the agricultural community in Gaza. They risk being shot for working on their fields. The UN estimates that some 30% of Gaza’s arable land lies within the no-go zone. And as such, many farmers here have no choice but to risk life and limb for the sake of their livelihoods. As a result, they are often shot at by Israeli snipers and many of them are killed. Shootings have increased in the buffer zone in the past couple of years, mostly targeting Palestinian farmers and gravel collectors. In 2010, around 47 people were killed and 114 injured in such incidents. As reliance on local farming continues to increase with Israel’s siege on the territory, targeting the agriculture sector will be destructive for Gaza’s already struggling population.
