11 February 2004, by Mohammed, Rafah, Palestine
Israeli Apaches are shelling the houses of the people in both Rafah and Gaza. Over 16 people were killed in Rafah and Gaza City, and over 60 were injured, many of them seriously. 31 of the injured were children.
Now all people are targeted: babies, children, women, old men. Everyone is targeted by Israeli snipers and Apaches. That is the translation for the removal of Jewish settlements, killing more and more innocent people while they were sleeping in their houses.
The attacks are still continuing in Rafah camp and Gaza City, more and more injured people. This incursion was carried out this time in a new appearance of Israel, which aims to cheat the world by what they are saying in their media about withdrawing from Gaza Strip. They shoot every moving thing, never mind what it is. They have spread horror and fear in the children and women, in addition to targeting the children going to school by the Israeli snipers located in the houses that they occupied this morning.
The world is silent, while Rafah and Gaza Strip appeal to a silent world. The foreigner Apaches are invading Rafah at this moment, while the shelling is everywhere, and there is no distinction between a journalist or a medical worker or even a child going to his school, all of them are targeted by Israeli troops who get their support from some of the supporter countries that always call for peace and justice. That’s why they look to the Palestinians, owners of the land, as a terrorists.. A strange world indeed... this time the one who has power can do whatever he wants. You won't lose when you share the truth, for the sake of the blood of those victims, just let your friends and all the world know about the truth, let them know about the daily attacks in Rafah and where it is! Let them know the outrageous and daily massacres that are committed by some the latest versions of the latest international versions of weapons..
Share the truth and know that this injustice will not be long, there will be time that the occupation will end, but that would be difficult without your hard work in telling the truth and spreading this report to all the people that you know..
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.
