freedom and human rights. Is it allowed in international law to shoot civilians, armless, more worse women ?! Who dares except Israel ? Israel dares because of Bush and new cons support ?! Where is UN human council ?! Where are NGO's supporting women ?! Why should women be targeted and shot while demonstrating peacefully ?!
Zionism history is bloody and violent. UN made a resolution that Zionism is a form of ratial discrimination. It is dangerous for world peace. Then why Israel is above law ? Till when Israel will be allowed to kill Palestinians freely with American arms. It is enough for civilians men and women to be shot and bombarded by Nazi Israel supported by Nazi Bush.

Israelis kill Palestinian women after Gaza siege by Israelis

 

Two women shot dead by Israelis in Gaza siege

By Sa'id Ghazali in Beit Hanoun and Eric Silver in Jerusalem
Israeli air and ground forces stepped up their onslaught on Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip last night, killing at least eight and wounding several more after a day in which two women were shot dead while acting as human shields for fugitive gunmen in the border town of Beit Hanoun.

A series of air strikes brought the total of Palestinian fighters and civilians killed in three days of combat to at least 33.

The Palestinian Red Crescent reported that five men died in the Jabaliya refugee camp in the most devastating of the strikes. Two of them were said to have been ambulance men tending victims. Three others were killed by missile fire on Rafah in the south and Beit Hanoun in the north. Israeli and Palestinian sources reported two armed men wounded in Beit Hanoun during a fourth air strike at 10.15 pm local time.

An Israeli military spokesman said the first Beit Hanoun victims were planting explosives near Israeli troops, who were laying siege to the town. The other groups were said to be launching Qassam rockets at Israeli towns and villages.

"We're still acting to target people we know have direct involvement in terror," the spokesman added. "The operation involved ground forces supported from the air. There could be more."

On the West Bank, a 65-year-old Palestinian woman was killed in the crossfire when soldiers went to arrest a suspected militant in Bethlehem. In the Balata refugee camp near Nablus, troops shot dead a Fatah activist said to have been preparing a car bomb.

Earlier, Israeli troops shot dead two Palestinian women and wounded at least 17 others when hundreds of women thronged the streets of Beit Hanoun to help gunmen who had escaped from a besieged mosque.

Gaza hospitals reported that three Hamas fighters and one from the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade were also killed. A one-year-old boy died from wounds sustained earlier in Israel's massive incursion, which is designed to stop militants launching Qassam rockets at Israel.

Lying in a hospital bed, covered from head to toe in a black cloak, Asma Hamad, 23, said that she and two relatives were wounded while serving as human shields for dozens of fighters, who had taken refuge in neighbouring houses.

The women were summoned by phone calls and local radio stations to rush to the area of the 700-year-old al-Nasr mosque. "We went immediately to the streets," Mrs Hamad said. "Some of us carried food, some brought traditional women's cloaks and head covers to help the fighters. The army immediately shot at us. I was hit in my left leg."

Her aunt Ilham Hamad, 48, was lying in another bed with wounds in her face and shoulder. Her sister-in-law Taghrid Hamad, 20, was transferred to Shifa hospital in Gaza City suffering from more serious wounds.

One woman told Maan, an independent Palestinian news agency, that she smuggled women's clothing into the al-Nasr mosque, where the gunmen were holed up , and helped them escape in disguise.

The army said it was targeting Beit Hanoun because 300 of the 800 Qassam rockets fired into Israel over the past year were launched there. The spokesman said soldiers shot at the women marchers after they had seen armed men firing from within the crowd. "We tried to use very direct fire and hit only armed men. If women were killed, it's unfortunate, but the gunmen were hiding behind the women."

Engineering units dug a trench 2m wide and 1m deep around Beit Hanoun, an overcrowded town of 43,000 people. But a narrow corridor was kept open for the army and ambulances.

Mohammed Kafarneh, Beit Hanoun's mayor, declared the town a disaster zone. " Unlike other raids," he said, "the army raided the centre of the city ". Six houses were demolished and scores badly damaged.

The mosque was damaged by bulldozers. Walls of five schools were destroyed

"It is unjustifiable to cause all this destruction," the mayor protested. "The people in Beit Hanoun are not firing rockets. These rockets come from outside of Beit Hanoun."
