Israel: October 9, 2002



 Palestinians admit they are surprised by the intensity of Israeli military operations in Gaza and the West Bank. About a dozen Palestinians a day are getting killed as the Palestinians fight back. But the Israelis are going in with large numbers (dozens) of armored vehicles in well planned raids to arrest terrorist leaders or destroy locations thought to be used for terrorist activities.

The head of the PLO riot police was killed by relatives of a Palestinian civilian killed by the riot police during a pro-Hamas demonstration. Hamas and Palestinian Authority gunmen are now having shootouts in the streets as the Palestinian Authority police try arrest those responsible for killing the riot police leader.
