  • Description

    ISRAELI FORCES TIGHTENED SECURITY MEASURES IN GAZA YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) FOLLOWING GRENADE ATTACKS ON TWO VEHICLES.

    IN ONE OF THE ATTACKS, A 12-YEAR-OLD ARAB BOY WAS KILLED AND 37 LOCAL PEOPLE INJURED WHEN GRENADES WERE THROWN AT A CIVILIAN VEHICLE IN A STREET IN THE MARKET AREA.

    AS SHOPS IN THE MARKET CLOSED FOR THE DAY, ISRAEL TROOPS RUSHED THE AREA AND BEGAN COMBING STREETS AND BUILDINGS FOR SUSPECTS.

    ABOUT 15 MINUTES AFTER THE FIRST INCIDENT, A GRENADE WAS THROWN AT AN ISRAELI MILITARY VEHICLE IN ANOTHER CROWDED GAZA STREET. THREE ISRAELI SOLDIERS WERE SLIGHTLY INJURED, BUT WERE ABLE TO RETURN TO THEIR UNITS AFTER RECEIVING FIRST AID.

    MANY OF THE ARAB WOUNDED IN THE FIRST ATTACK WERE WOMEN AND CHILDREN, INCLUDING A SIX-YEAR-OLD GIRL AND A 75-YEAR-OLD WOMAN. FIVE PEOPLE WITH SERIOUS INJURIES WERE BEING TREATED AT GAZA'S BAPTIST HOSPITAL.

    SINCE THE BEGINNING OF FEBRUARY, GUERILLA ACTIVITY HAS BEEN ON THE INCREASE IN GAZA AFTER THREE MONTHS OF RELATIVE CALM.
