Israeli officials were badly shaken by the success of two 18-year-old men from Jabaliya refugee camp who exited the Gaza Strip undetected and then penetrated the security of nearby Ashdod's port.



The pair detonated their explosives at separate locations, killing 10 Israeli port workers. One of the men nearly reached his supposed target, a fuel depot, where an explosion could have resulted in far higher casualties.






Every day, Khalid Jarrar goes to tend his cabbage patch in the shadow of an eight-meter high concrete wall in Qalqiliya.



The barrier Israel is building in the West Bank has been cruel to Jarrar. A few months ago, he had 15 dunams of land, with an orchard of citrus trees in addition to the cabbage patches. Now, he is down to three dunams, and has been cut off from his trees and the well that he used to irrigate his land.



An Israeli watchtower overlooks his plot, and Jarrar complains of constant harassment.

Every day for the last few weeks Occupation forces have been working to clear the lands northwest of Jerusalem for the Apartheid Wall, and every day the villagers of Beit Duqqu, among many others have stood together on their lands trying to stop the senseless destruction.

    The Apartheid Wall, which began being built in the Occupied West Bank in June 2002, is nearly one third complete. It snakes its way deep inside the West Bank, devouring fertile land into de facto Israeli controlled areas, encircling residential areas, ghettoizing and imprisoning the Palestinian population.
