  • Description

    RESIDENT OF KARAMEH, THE VILLAGE IN JORDAN, ATTACKED BY ISRAELI FORCES LAST THURSDAY, HAVE BEGUN TO FILTER BACK TO EXAMINED THE DAMAGE TO THEIR HOMES. LAST FRIDAY, WHEN JOURNALISTS VISITED THE VILLAGE, THEY REPORTED THAT ONLY COMMANDOS WERE TO BE SEEN IN THE STREETS BUT YESTERDAY (SUNDAY), MANY CIVILIANS COULD BE SEEN.

    ON SATURDAY, AN 18 YEAR OLD ARAB COMMANDO, CAPTURED BY THE ISRAELIS, SAID AT A PRESS CONFERENCE THAT EL FATAH COMMANDOS HAD VIRTUALLY TAKEN OVER THE VILLAGE BEFORE THE RAID, COMMANDEERING HOMES AND FOOD AND RECRUITING YOUNG MEN FOR TRAINING.

    YESTERDAY, MANY RESIDENTS HAD RETURNED TO THEIR HOMES AND WERE CLEARING THE RUBBLE, READY TO BEGIN REBUILDING.

    THE JORDANIAN GOVERNMENT HAS ANNOUNCED THAT COMPENSATION WILL BE GIVEN TO THOSE WHO LOST THEIR HOMES AND BELONGINGS IN THE BATTLE. FAMILIES OF CIVILIANS, KILLED IN THE RAD, WILL ALSO BE COMPENSATED.

    A TOTAL OF 50 CIVILIANS WERE KILLED IN THE KARAMEH AREA.
