Sharon continues his massacre

Israeli troops occupy completely Ramallah

The Israeli army has entered Ramallah and has completely occupied and
imposed a curfew on the whole city, the center of the Palestinian Authority
and all humanitarian organisations.

The Israeli army invaded with tanks and military, under the cover of apache
helicopters, and bombarding several areas of the city. The Israeli army
refuses to allow all but one ambulance to move, thereby freezing medical
care, leaving many injured people left untreated. Three Palestinians have
been reported dead in Ramallah, and tens injured. Many buildings throughout
the city have been occupied, and in many apartment blocks, soldiers are
forcing all families in the building into one flat, occupying the b Last
night the Israeli army also invaded Jabalia refugee camp in the Gaza Strip;
18 Palestinians have been killed so far.

Over the last week, Sharon has been conducting a gradual massacre of the
Palestinian people, killing approximately 160 Palestinians since the
beginning of this month in aggressive attacks on Nablus, Jenin, Tulkarem,
Qalqilya, Bethlehem, Gaza and now Ramallah, and injuring more than 1000

The Palestinian civilian population has no way of protecting itself from
Sharon's aggressive attacks. Sharon - the war criminal of Sabra and Shatila
- will continue his attacks on Palestinians unless international
intervention forces him otherwise. We call urgently on the international
community to intervene and provide international protection for the
Palestinian people.
