the first day of Eid Al_fitr Israeli forces kill seven Palestinians

Date: 23 / 10 / 2006 Time: 13:49
Gaza - Ma'an - The number of Palestinians killed in Beit Hanoun in the north of the Gaza Strip on Monday, the first day of Eid al-Fitr, has risen to seven after an Israeli commando force attacked a family home, reportedly belonging to a leader in the Popular Resistance Committees (PRC).
An Israeli commando unit of "must'a'ribeen" disguised in Arab clothes opened fire at the house of the Al-Shinbari family in the area of Bayarat Zamo in Beit Hanoun, who were in mourning for one of their family members.
'Atta Fuad al-Shinbari, reportedly a PRC leader, and his brothers Muhammad and Ibrahim were killed in the attack. So were Kamal Adnan Al-Shinbari and his brothers Riyad and Khalid Al-Shinbari. A seventh man, Rami Musa Hamdan, was also killed in the Israeli attack.
Another twenty Palestinians were wounded by Israeli gunshots. The Israeli artillery then began bombing the area, causing confusion and enabling the commando unit of killers to withdraw.
The injured were transferred to hospitals in the north of the Gaza Strip.
The Israeli forces also broke into the Farahin area of 'Abasan, east of Khan Younis in the south of the Gaza Strip on Monday morning. One Palestinian belonging to the Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades, the military wing of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) was killed in this incursion.
The Israeli occupation forces also bombarded the car of a former Palestinian minister, Sufian Abu Ziyadeh, which led to the injury of his brother who was admitted to hospital.
This operation is part of Israel's ongoing and daily aggression on the Gaza Strip that has continued for months. Israel is waging a battle against Gaza that no doubt leaves international observers confused: on one hand Ehud Olmert telephones the Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas to pass on best wishes for Eid Al-Fitr, and on the other hand, Israel sends in a commando unit to execute this deadly operation, thereby spoiling any remaining joy of the feast.

There is no change , the same celebration of Eid Al_fitr

Since I was born on this occupied land , I have heard people around me saying we hope that the next Eid El_ fiter will be come and we will celebrate at same time that Palestine will be liberated from the Israeli occupation , establishing our independent state and Jerusalem as a capital of it and refugees return to their native homes ……
But in fact this situation haven't been changed , in addition to continuing of killing Palestinian civilians , imposing siege , increasing of poverty and unemployment range , destroying Palestinian houses and also increasing of prisoners and settlements numbers …. Every Palestinian family celebrate Eid with big pain because all of them have sad experience as losing someone, have injured or prisoners or th
ey have not home to stay .
I think we have the right to celebrate Eid without hearing the bomb sounds , seeing the views of destroyed houses and agricultural land ..
Finally , I will say as my people have said that I hope that next Eid and we celebrate in our independent state and also getting our rights ….
Happy Eid for all
