Date: 14 / 11 / 2006 Time: 09:01
Nablus – Ma’an – An Israeli occupation death squad executed a 26-year old Palestinian man early on Tuesday morning during an Israeli occupation incursion into Ein Beit Al-Ma refugee camp, west of Nablus city, in the north of the occupied West Bank (without any provocation from the Palestinian side).
Palestinian medical sources said that Baha’ Salah Al-Khater, 26, was killed during fierce confrontations that took place in the camp after dozens of Israeli military vehicles stormed the camp.
The same sources reported that the ambulance and medical crew could not reach Al-Khater, who was inside one of the houses, due to the intensive shooting taking place.
The Israeli forces carried on searching a number of houses in the camp after killing Al-Khater.
Baha’ Salah Al-Khater was a member of the Abu ‘Ali Mustafa Brigades, the military wing of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). Yesterday, Monday, the Israeli forces entered Ein Beit Al-Ma refugee camp and ransacked the local PFLP office, destroying it with explosives.
Northern West Bank PFLP still under attack
PNN, (Nablus) Amin Abu Wardeh Tuesday, 14 November 2006
Israeli occupation death squads invaded the northern West Bank’s Al-Ein Refugee Camp and killed Baha Salah Khatari. During the early morning hours of Tuesday 25 military vehicles incurred into Nablus though Checkpoint 27 and Beit Iba Checkpoint. Israeli occupation soldiers began storming houses and then the bulldozing began, destroying several facades and cars parked in the streets of the camp.
An Israeli occupation death squad opened fire at 24 year old Khatari, for mere affiliation with the Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades, the armed resistance wing of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). The shot injured Khatari and his death was announced shortly after.
It is of note that Israeli death squads have been hunting young Khatari since they kidnapped his father in an attempt to pressure him.
During the raids Israeli occupation forces stormed the home of Mahmoud Ramaha and converted into a military installation. Another home near Al Ein Refugee Camp was overtaken for a control point. A home owner said, “I heard explosions and heavy gunfire during the operation which lasted more than three years.”
The leftist Popular Front for the Liberation issued a statement read through a loudspeaker vowing to avenge Khatari’s senseless murder.
On Monday Israeli forces bulldozed the PFLP offices in Al-Ein Refugee Camp.
Al-Jazeerah Editor’s Note:
Israeli media describe killing civilians as terrorism. However, when Israeli occupation soldiers kill Palestinian civilians, they do not describe the Israeli killers of civilians as terrorists. It’s time for Israeli terrorist acts to be described as terrorism.
Israeli occupation forces use the term “arrest” for “kidnapping” Palestinians from their homes. Objective media worldwide should not fall to the Israeli trap. This is kidnapping.
The Israeli occupation of Palestine is illegal under international law. The Israeli occupation government and its occupation forces have no jurisdiction over Palestinians. Only legitimate governments can arrest citizens. It follows that the correct term is “kidnapping” Palestinians, not “arresting” them by Israeli occupation forces.
