It's a Massacre - IDF Buries People Alive in Jenin
Eyewitnesses in Jenin say the Israel army is systematically bulldozing houses in the refugee camp while people are inside the houses.
Another eyewitness in Balata says: "They are surrounding Balata with tanks, they warn the loudspeakers the people to come out with a white flag over their heads, no one came out. They are now destroying houses with people inside."
"I am 150 meters from the camp. They are using tanks, 6 heliocopters over the camp. 20-30,000 residents. I see a lot of smoking houses. 25-30 tanks, 4 helicopters... attacking everyone in the camps."
The camp in Jenin is home to some 15,000 Palestinians in an area of one kilometre squared. At the same time IDF soldiers are dropping tear gas from helicopters on the camp.
For two days the camp has resisted the Israeli invasion.
The Israeli army has attacked continuously throughout the night.
Apache helicopters have attacked and seriously damaged around 50 houses in the western side of the camp, 20 people are reported injured, bleeding in the street.
Reports from the inhabitants are that there are 15 dead bodies in different locations, but again ambulances came under attack when trying to gain access to these bodies; this time with ammunition from the helicopters.
Earlier today the Israeli soldiers declared to inhabitants of the camp that they would cease their fire so as to allow women and elderly to get water.
A number of women and elderly men came out of their homes. However, as they reached the camp's entrance, where Israeli tanks and personnel carriers were, they were arrested.
The IDF soldiers then began calling out on loudhailers calling resistance fighters to surrender or the elderly and women would be killed.
The detainees were strapped to tanks and personnel carriers, which then resumed the bombardment of the camp.
Shaul Mofaz, Israel's Chief of Staff, is personally heading the Jenin offensive.
Palestinian officials have thus held him directly responsible for the atrocities taking place in the Jenin refugee camp.
Yesterday at Al Razi hospital in Jenin, doctors and medics watched on helplessly as 28-year-old Nidal Al Haj bled to death inside the hospital yard.
Dr. Ali Jabareen of Al Razi Hospital explained how medics waited for a long time, but they could get to him because of the shelling. Hospitals report a shortage of oxygen and other medical supplies.
Dr Jabareen says: "We have one person dead here yesterday, lying in the street about 45 meters from the hospital. We couldn't get to him to help him, went out with white flag, the soldiers shot. The man cried out, help me, help me, I am going to die.
"We tried many times to reach him, but were unable. He bled to death. The condition is very bad in Jenin Camp. We receive many calls, but the Red Cross and Red Crescent unable to reach these camps."
Meanwhile in Bethlehem a Red Crescent ambulance escorted by 25 international civilians was denied access to the Church of the Nativiy in Bethlehem.
The group was bringing medical aid and food but was forced to turn around when the IDF refused to grant access either to Manger Square or the Church of the Nativity.
Israeli soldiers said there were no injured in the church, but if they were, they were being cared for. The group asked the IDF to confirm this and again were denied access.
