Welcome to Palestine Today, a service of the International Middle East Media Center, www.imemc.org, for Wednesday November 14th, 2012.
Two Palestinians killed in Gaza due to Israeli air raids, and two civilians injured as troops attack protests in the West Bank. These stories, and more, coming up, stay tuned.
Two Palestinians were killed, four others injured, one critical, by Israeli air strikes targeting Gaza city on Wednesday afternoon.
Local sources said that an Israeli military unmanned plan fired a missile at car near Gaza City hospital killing Ahmad Al Ja’bari, 52, and Mohamed Al Hiems, 30. Four others were injured one critical. Sources added that Al Ja’bari is leader in the Hamas movement.
Another Israeli air raid targeted a civilian car near the Gaza city port on Wednesday afternoon. Local sources said that two men who were inside the car were injured and moved to a nearby hospital.
Meanwhile Israeli F16 fighter-jets fired missiles at residents’ homes in Khan Younis, southern Gaza Strip, no injuries were reported.
The death of the two men today brings the number of Palestinians killed by the Israeli army since Saturday to ten, 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.
Elsewhere Israeli troops attacked on Wednesday midday a number of protests organized at a number of West Bank communities demanding freedom and end of the occupation.
Protests were organized in northern West Bank cities of Nablus, Jenin, and Qalqilia as well as Ramallah in central West Bank, and Bethlehem and Hebron in the south and Jericho city. Troops used rubber-coated steel bullets and tear gas to force people back.
As a result two youth were injured, two arrested and many were treated for the effects of tear gas inhalation.
