And It Takes a Bulldozer to Finish the Job

And It Takes a Bulldozer to Finish the Job

In Askar, the large refugee camp just outside of occupied Nablus, a bulldozer is now demolishing a house. After tanks shot at it and a fire began to destroy it, the bulldozer has is busy finishing the job. This house is four stories high, and, according to the eyewitnesses, little or no time was given to the inhabitants of the house to flee. At this writing, three additional people have been injured, and the tanks are still shooting down the street.

The three-month truce appears to have been broken by the Israeli Military this morning and little information has been forthcoming as to why it took seven tanks, three jeeps, a helicopter and a bulldozer to come into the camp looking for one man. Since the only information about this incursion is coming from eyewitness accounts inside the camp, we are reporting the facts as they are watching them.

Once the occupation forces leave the camp, we will have photos available.
