1. Rafah Update - More Deaths, Shootings and Arrests

Gaza ISM Rafah

These days there is a heavy tension in the air. Many people feel that what the IOF did in October was only half of what they had intended, and there is more yet to come.

More gunfire, a lot of gunfire, during the day.

2. Pain Without Borders at the Israeli Checkpoints

Qalqilia ISM Jayyous 21 Nov 03

The following is an account written by a Palestinian friend of mine from the village of Jayyous two months ago. He teaches teenage boys in Qalqilia city. He struggles daily at the checkpoint in order to enter Qalqilia and go to work and exit Qalqilia to return home. He often sleeps in Qalqilia because he finds it too difficult to travel the few kilometers between Qalqilia and Jayyous.
