Israel: November 3, 2000


Israeli gunships fired rockets at houses in Gaza where Palestinian gunmen had been firing at Israeli troops. Israeli tanks continue to shell buildings for the same reason. Two more Palestinians were killed and over fifty injured. Meanwhile, the violence has moved to the Internet, where Palestinians and Israelis trash each others web sites. Israel has given the Palestinians 24 hours to do something positive with the latest cease fire agreement. Otherwise, Israel says it will increase it's use of heavy weapons and commandoes to fight the violent Palestinians. In any event, the latest attempt at a cease fire is showing some results, as Israelis pull back some of their troops and Palestinian media tone down the rabble rousing.
