Only Two Days Into Truce And Israelis Murder Gaza Resident.

I have abbreviated the following Israeli News article.

Ynet news.com               Nov.23, 2012

Hamas Islamists enforced a fragile two-day-old truce on Friday by evacuating Palestinians from a “no-go” border zone after Israel shot dead a Gaza resident there in the first fatality since the ceasefire.

The rare move by the group in control of the Gaza Strip followed intervention by Egyptian mediators who urged both sides to take steps to preserve the truce that ended eight days of fierce Israeli-Palestinian fighting on Wednesday.

Israel said its troops opened fire after protesters, some of them throwing stones, tried to breach a Gaza border fence, violating a 300-metre wide security zone where Israel has barred Palestinian access since 2009.

Hamas denounced the shooting which killed Anwar Qdeih, 23, and injured 15 other people, as a violation of the truce.

Health officials said Qdeih was shot in the head. 

Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Malki, speaking from talks with Italian leaders in Rome, said the incident was “a clear violation of the agreement and should not be repeated.”

The ceasefire, though, remained intact, with no reports of rockets being fired at Israel, after Egypt contacted both sides, Palestinian sources close to the truce negotiators said. (pic above British protesters)

Omar Qdeish, a witness and relative of the man who was killed said he “was trying to put a Hamas flag on the fence” when he was shot.

“The army fired three times into the air. Anwar shouted at them ‘Jabari is behind you’, then they shot him in the head,” he told Reuters.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said of Friday’s incident that soldiers fired warning shots into the air to push back some 300 Palestinians including protesters attempting to breach the border fence.

“After the rioters did not comply, the soldiers responded by firing toward the legs of the rioters,” the spokeswoman said.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
