Attacks Continue Under PA Security (INN-ISRAEL NATIONAL NEWS) 01/31/05)Source: http://www.israelnationalnews.com/news.php3?id=76195 INN} ISRAEL NATIONAL NEWS INN} ISRAEL NATIONAL NEWS Articles-Index-TopPublishers-Index-Top
Attacks continue to emanate from Gaza towns handed over to PA Security, with eight mortar shells launched and a 110 pound bomb uncovered today.

The mortar shells slammed into the Gush Katif Jewish communities of N’vei Dekalim and Gadid Monday afternoon. One shell hit a home in N’vei Dekalim, destroying the kitchen but failing to injure any of the inhabitants.

The owner of the house told Israel Radio that she hoped people wound not continue to be fooled by the “trickery” of the PA police, who rather than fight terror, take an active role in it. Over 2,000 armed PA Arabs have been deployed in the area surrounding Gush Katif, ostensibly to prevent the firing of rockets and mortars.

“The continued meetings between Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz and [PA strong-man Muhammed] Dahlan as mortar shells continue to fall on Gush Katif are shameful and morally indefensible,“ said Gush Katif spokesman Eran Sternberg. “We will do everything in our power to bring this reprehensible situation to an end.”

Also Monday, the explosive device was discovered by border police just south of the Kissufin crossing, the main entrance to Gush Katif. It was detonated safely by police sappers. Terrorists also opened fire in the direction of the hothouses of the southern Gaza town of Morag this afternoon. There were no injuries reported. (IsraelNationalNews © 01/31/05)
