  • Elder of Ziyon
2 Fatah terrorists and 2 others were killed today, including a pro-Hamas journalist, as the intrafada which had been on hold for a couple of months (at least as far as fatal events are concerned) started heating up again. This brings the weekend death count to 6.

There were also a spate of kidnappings, and three were wounded during the Fatah commander's funeral. Both sides started setting up checkpoints throughout Gaza.

In other words, things are getting back to normal. As is always the case, things that the Palestinian Arabs and "human rights activists" blame Israel for are being done on a much grander scale by the poor, oppressed, starving, victimized yet proud Palestinian Arabs to each other. (The Palestinian Arab media invariably refer to Israeli arrests of terrorists as "abductions" or "kidnappings.")

Our PalArab self-death count is now at 206 for the year.

UPDATE: Ma'an (Arabic) counts five dead today. 207.

2 more Fatah members killed Monday morning. 209.

Hard to keep track of the numbers now; Ma'an reports two pro-Hamas journalists from Falastine killed last night but I'm not sure if one of those were mentioned yesterday so I'll only count one. Ma'an is also reporting in its "breaking news" headline (no link) that a bystander was killed in Khan Younis. So now we are at 211.

UPDATE 4: 14-year old boy killed in a clan clash in Nuseirat, central Gaza. 212.
I'm going to downgrade the number because I may have double-counted one, Ma'an says the total is at 8 dead from the clashes and this does not include the three normal murders that happened besides those, and as far as I can tell they are including all the ones killed from other news sources, so for now I will go back to 211. (It may be that some killed on Sunday were counted as Monday deaths.)

UPDATE 5: Ha'aretz counts 5 dead Sunday and four more Monday, including a truck driver killed by a stray bullet. This revises the count back up to 212.

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 11 years and over 23,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
