  • Description

    FOLLOWING A SHARP RISE IN THE INCIDENCE OF VIOLENCE AND SABOTAGE THROUGHOUT THE GAZA REGION, IN WHICH ONE ISRAELI CIVILIAN WAS KILLED, AND ANOTHER AND FOUR SOLDIERS INJURED, ISRAELI SECURITY FORCES TODAY (10 AUGUST) ORDERED PEOPLE LIVING IN A SECTION OF GAZA TO STAY IN THEIR HOMES WHILE A SEARCH FOR THE PERPETRATORS WAS INSTITUTED.

    THE FOUR SOLDIERS WERE INJURED WHEN A HAND-GRENADE AND A BAZOOKA SHELL EXPLODED IN THE HALF-TRACK IN WHICH THEY WERE TRAVELLING. IN OTHER INCIDENTS, AN EXPLOSIVE CHARGE WENT OFF OUTSIDE GOVERNMENT HOUSE AND THREE HAND GRENADES WERE THROWN AT THE ENTRANCE TO THE DISCOUNT BANK OFFICE, NEITHER INCIDENT, HOWEVER, CAUSING MUCH DAMAGE.

    THE CURFEW, WHICH WAS IMPOSED ON PEOPLE LIVING IN AREAS TO THE EAST AND SOUTH OF THE MAIN ROAD THROUGH GAZA, WAS IMPLEMENTED TO ENABLE SECURITY FORCES TO CARRY OUT A HOUSE-TO-HOUSE SEARCH. SOLDIERS IN OTHER PARTS OF THE CITY MEANWHILE CHECKED IDENTITY CARDS.
