Atrocities In Jenin - Intervention Now!

SOS calls from the Jenin Refugee camp! The camp, 1 km squared, home to approximately 15,000 people is being attacked by air and land. Contacts in Jenin City report heavy black smoke rising from inside the camp.

Friends inside the camp are reporting heavy bombardment by tanks and helicopter gunships. Bulldozers have also been brought into the camp and are demolishing homes to make way in the narrow streets of the camp for tanks to enter.

"We have no electricity and no water. Our water tanks have been destroyed from the intensity of the Israeli bombardment. Our wives are crying and our kids are screaming. There's no television to distract them. All they are hearing is the explosions all around them. Where is the conscience of the world when we are being massacred and no one is intervening to stop it?" – Jamal Abu Al-Haije, resident of Jenin Camp

Dr. Ali Jabareen of the Jenin Hospital reports that they need help reaching the injured and dead. People are being left to bleed in the streets and other people are being buried under the rubble of their homes. No idea how many people are dead. The hospital ambulances are not being allowed to move. UNRWA and the International Committee of the Red Cross are not able to function.

Is there anyone to help? To contact Dr. Ali Jabareen, please call: +972-4-250-2653/4

Reports from Nablus are that they have also brought bulldozers into the Balata Refugee Camp.

Random explosions throughout Ramallah. Difficult to know what is being blown up.

Innocent Palestinian civilians are being terrorized and killed. The international community has an obligation to stop this massacre. Will we wait until it's over to say that we're sorry?
