From: Tamar Pelleg Sryck

I want to share with you information I received from a friend in Tul Karm about the situation in the town and the nearby refugee camps. As there is curfew there, and many phones don't answer it is difficult to reach people there. Therefore there can be some imprecisions in the following

There were close to 600 men arrested from the town of Tul Karm and the camps Nur A-Shams and Tul Karm. Some have been released. In the Tul Karm Camp men 14 to 60 years old were ordered to leave homes and reach the UNRWA school. There they were arrested and transferred to the Ofer military camp in Bitunia.

About 90 wounded were allowed to be transported to the hospital in T.K.

A woman 17 yers old, Rana Jayussi the wife of Ziad Salah Jayusi from the village of KOOR (near TK) died after having tried alternative ways to reach alternative hospitals to give birth.The baby died as well.

There is no electricity in the camps and in about 2/3 of the town.

The curfew continues.

People are running out of their food supplies. Some don't have food left. There is no water in Tul Karm camp.

Right now the army is destroying houses and shops in the camp.
