Israeli army terrorizes activists, destroy Mosque

Israeli army terrorize 2 ISM activists while destroying Mosque

Wed. Mar.27, 03

Brazil Block area of Rafa

Last night, Israeli forces destroyed a Mosque with a bullozer. While doing so, they terrorized a house containing Internationals just a few doors down. The two Internationals are both American and are members of ISM, the International Solidarity Movement. They have been staying in the house trying to provide protection for the family, the house, and themselves. Last night, the Israeli forces shot a tank shell at the house knowing that the unarmed Internationals and a civilian family were inside.

We contacted the American Embassy and then the Embassy Duty Officer contacted both the Americans under siege and the Israeli Army. It was actually following his contact that the soldiers fired the tank shell. Not long after, there was an explosion followed by a lot of gunfire. Some of this gunfire was clearly directed at the house in order to intimidate the Americans and the Palestinian family inside. This all seems to be part of an increased effort on the part of the Israeli army to intimidate Internationals into leaving. It escalated last week with the murder of Rachel Corrie by an Israeli soldier. Rachel was also an American member od ISM.
