Resistance fighters engage advancing IOF troops in Gaza
|21/12/2009 – 10:52 AM|
BEIT HANUN, (PIC)– Palestinian resistance fighters engaged special Israeli forces east of Beit Hanun town in northern Gaza Strip at dawn Monday, local sources told the PIC reporter.
They added that the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) infiltrated late Sunday night near the Beit Hanun (Erez) crossing amidst intensified over flights of warplanes.
The PIC reporter said that more than 20 IOF armored vehicles infiltrated into the area while similar moves were reported in eastern Gaza city.
Local sources noted that IOF tanks east of Gaza fired three shells at civilian homes that fell in cultivated land lots and inflicted only material damage.
In the West Bank, the IOF soldiers detained Hamas leader Sheikh Yousef Abul Rub, a teacher and preacher, in Jalbun village, east of Jenin, in a raid that lasted for a few hours.
Eyewitnesses said that IOF soldiers broke into the Sheikh’s home and remained there for two hours during which they interrogated its residents.
They added that the soldiers then took Abul Rub, 45, blindfolded in one of their vehicles as other soldiers combed the vicinity of his home for hours.
Abul Rub was only recently released from PA prisons in Jenin where he was detained on six separate occasions. He was also detained in Israeli jails on several occasions.

One morning, one of those Saturday hiking mornings, two Jewish colonists from a nearby colony passed me on their dirt bikes on their way to promenade in our olive orchards and hurled at me a soft and humane “boker tov” (good morning), to which I responded, equally softly and humanely. They continued their ride, and I was forcefully left with my unanswered questions about the nature of our “living together.”
On the face of it, the “boker tov” greeting was natural and expected. But why did it upset me? … continue
