Israelis are found killing, mutilating and destroying in Rafah, Palestine.
3 February 04, by Mohammed, Rafah, in Gaza, Palestine

While the Arab countries are celebrating AL Adha Eid and the presidents send their congratulations on that occasion, 4 people were killed this morning when a large number of bulldozers and tanks attacked Tal Al Sultan in Rafah Refugee Camp.. According to Abu Yousif Al Najjar hospital in Rafah: "one of the injured people was a paralyzed man called Yasir Abu AlAesh (35), and they found mutilation such as hacking by knives in the bodies of the killed people after killing them by bullets. His brother Abdelhamed Abu AlAesh (38) was also injured by several bullets in his body"..

A large number of people participated in the funeral of the murdered people this morning. Funerals have became the norm here, and no days pass without one Israeli crime or another, even if you want to ask any child in the street about the Israeli Army crimes, simply he would describe the plight that he faced every night while the people are sleeping
in their homes..

This massacre came just two days after shooting two students while they were studying in their classrooms. The two students are Mohammed Jamel Al Boab, who was injured in his cheek, and the other Tamer Zuhair Saheen who was inured in his right shoulder. The Israelis also had two bulldozers that demolished a large numbers of olive and orange trees..

Note: On October 1, 2003 Mohammed's younger brother Issam was seriously injured; his leg was amputated. And on October 18 Mohammad's younger brother, Hussam Al-Mouhagir [17 yrs old], was killed by the Israeli army.
Says Mohammed: Hussam was sitting at home when he was shot in the face, chest, back, legs. He had nothing to do with any violent or even political movement.
