PalArab news roundup 6-9-09

There are reports that three rockets were shot Gaza on Monday night - into Egypt. The rockets did not explode.

The PA confiscated some two tons of explosives from Hamas members in Qalqilya, in the West Bank. They found out about it from previous arrests of Hamas members. Some of the explosives were in a Jacuzzi.

The PA also found a Hamas member in Nablus with over one million euros. It was apparently meant to build up the Hamas movement in the West Bank to destabilize the PA.

Meanwhile, the PA also arrested three Hamas women planning suicide attacks - against the PA. When Hamas said a few weeks ago that they will treat the PA the way they treat Israel, they weren't kidding!

A leader of Islamic Jihad has again rejected the idea of a two-state solution.

A chain reaction of exploding cooking gas canisters injured 30 people in Khan Younis.

Late last week a Gaza farmer was killed when he apparently came across some unexploded Hamas explosives, putting the 2009 PalArab self-death count at 96.
