Welcome to Palestine Today, a service of the International Middle East Media Center, www.imemc.org, for Tuesday November 13th, 2012.
A man died of wounds sustained on Saturday by Israeli attacks targeting Gaza, and troops demolish a Palestinian owned home in the West Bank. These stories, and more, coming up, stay tuned.
Palestinian medical sources in the Gaza Strip reported, Tuesday, that a resistance fighter died of wounds suffered last Saturday during the latest wave of Israeli military escalation against the coastal region. The Ministry of Health in Gaza reported that Mohammad Ziyad Qanoa’, 20, succumbed to serious wounds suffered during an Israeli bombardment targeting Tallet Al-Mintar area, in Gaza.
The death of Qanoa’ brings the number of Palestinians killed by the Israeli army since Saturday to eight, including a 15 and 17 year-old brother, while dozens of residents, including children, were injured by Israeli fire and shells in the coastal region.
The Israeli Air Force carried out, on Tuesday at dawn, at least three airstrikes targeting different areas in the Gaza Strip leading to damage but no injuries.
In other news Israeli soldiers demolished, Tuesday, one home in Jerusalem, a car repair shop in Husan village, near Bethlehem, and a water pool in Beit Einoon village, near the southern West Bank city of Hebron. Furthermore, soldiers installed a roadblock near the northern entrance of Hebron, near the Halhoul town bridge.
The army stopped dozens of vehicles, and interrogated the residents while inspecting their ID cards and searching their vehicles; no arrests were reported.
Elsewhere Israeli soldiers kidnapped, on Tuesday at dawn, Mona Qa’daan, 40, a former political prisoner from Arraba town, near the northern West Bank district on Jenin; the army violently broke into her home and searched it. Qa’daan was previously kidnapped by the army four times, and spent a total of three years in prison.
The last time she was kidnapped and imprisoned was on May 31, 2011, and was released on December 18, 2011, under the prisoner-swap deal reached between Palestinian resistance groups and Israel in which Israeli corporal Gilad Shalit was released in exchange for the release of over a 1000 Palestinian political prisoners.
