Palestine News Agency: Israeli occupation army forces entered Palestinian-full controlled territory in the West Bank City of Ramallah for a few hours early Sunday, a Palestinian man was killed and at least 37 others were wounded during the occupation raids.

Seven Israeli tanks and two attack helicopters that entered Ramallah shelled Palestinian police checkpoints, a building belonging to Palestinian intelligence and three houses, Palestinian security officials said.

Hospital officials said Palestinian security officer Ali al-Yaseany, died and at least 37 others were wounded after the occupation tanks entered Ramallah from up to four different locations and fired several shells before starting to withdraw about four hours later.

Witnesses said that US made helicopter gun ships swooped low over Ramallah, launching missiles towards the residential buildings and infrastructure belonging to Force 17 presidential guard.

Elsewhere, a Palestinian firefighter was killed after an Israeli occupation tank fired a shell at the city of Beit Sahour as he tried to rescue several Palestinians injured by Israeli occupation troop gunfire, Palestinian hospital sources said. The sources said that the occupation tank shell killed Yahya Sabayha, 20, when he tried to rescue several Palestinian civilians injured by Israeli occupation gunfire and tanks shells.

Eyewitnesses told Wafa that occupation troops stationed on Abu Gneam Mountain, next to Beit Sahour, launched several tank missiles at Palestinian homes, when one shell hit the firefighter Yahya Sabayha.

The martyr Sabayha was killed as he tried to get people from under the debris, Hospital official said. They added that the occupation missile shrapnel injured at least 10 people, two houses were burned and several houses were damaged.

''This is a terrorist attack against civilians, a new episode of the chain of attacks by Sharon which is trying to do daily against the Palestine people.'' Palestinian Information Minister Yasser Abed Rabbo told Voice Of Palestine Radio (VOP) in response to the latest Israeli aggression.
