    Palestinians Commemorate the 1948 Massacre of Dawaymeh



    Occupied Jerusalem: 28 October, 2001 (IAP News)



    Palestinians on Sunday commemorated "the Massacre of Dawaymeh" perpetrated
    by Jewish terrorist gangs at the village of Dawaymeh, 28 km west of Hebron,
    on 29 October, 1948.



    Between, 80-100 Palestinian villagers , including women and children, were
    killed by terrorists of the Palmach.



    According to the Israeli paper, Alhamishmar (ceased pub.), "the children
    they killed by breaking their heads with sticks. There was not a house
    without dead. One commander ordered a sapper to put two old women in a
    certain house and to blow up the house with them. The sapper refused, then
    the commander ordered his men to put in the old women and the evil deed
    was done. One soldier boasted that he had raped a woman and then shot her."



    Another description of the massacre was given by the former Mukhtar of the
    village.



    "The people fled, and everyone they saw in the houses, they shot and
    killed. They also killed people in the streets. They came and blew up my
    house, in the presence of eye-witnesses."



    He added "the moment that the tanks came and opened fire, I left the
    village immediately. At about half-past ten, two tanks passed by the
    Darawish mosque. About 75 old people were there, who had come early for the
    Friday prayers. They were all killed."



    The Mukhtar also said that about 35 family were hiding in a cave outside
    al-Dawaymeh.



    When the Zionists discovered them, "they told them to come out and get into
    line and start to walk. And as they started to walk, they were shot by
    machine guns from two sides. We sent people there that night, who collected
    the bodies, put them into a cistern and buried them."



    The massacre prompted some conscientious Jews to declare that "Jews, too,
    have committed Nazi acts."
