Bulldozer Brutality In The West Bank: Israeli Army Arrives Commanding Curfew In Nablus ...
RICHARD REPORTS - YOU DECIDE - SUNDAY 25TH FEBRUARY 2007
First off, we're starting by cutting any crap and cutting straight to the chase.
1./ We DO NOT deny the Holocaust happened.
2./ We DO NOT deny the state of Israel's right to exist.
3./ We DO NOT agree with or condone anti-Semitism.
...... Witnesses reported 80 jeeps backing several bulldozers [entering] the Old City, Ras al-Ain and al-Jabal al-Shamali neighbourhoods of Nablus.
The size of the operation indicates that the military operation will not end soon, according to Al Jazeera's correspondent there.
The bulldozers pushed rubble into piles on main roads to make them impassable, witnesses said, while snipers took positions on rooftops in the Old City and the neighbourhood close to Raefedia hospital.
Troops placed about 50,000 people under curfew in the centre of Nablus and closed the main entrance to the city.
Jeeps blocked entries to two main hospitals in the city, al-Watani and Raefedia, said Ghassan Hamdan, a doctor there.
"We are suffering, Nablus is suffering, from this closure," Hafiz Shahine, the deputy mayor of the city told Al Jazeera, "the shops are closed and streets and blocked in the Old City, no-one can get out of their homes."
"Nablus has been under seige for six years," he said.
(Please note that the old lady shown laying prone was completely alive, uninjured and unharmed at the time of being photographed, but was protesting personally -- super-strongly.)
