This is viewer supported news

The killing is continuing in Jenin. The Israeli army has blocked all reporters from the area and prevented ambulances from entering. But Palestinian medical sources and witnesses say Israeli troops Israeli Apache helicopters fired several missiles at a house in the town of Jenin, killing two, and Army bulldozers are continuing to destroy houses. Troops also attacked the nearby village of Arabeh and killed at least seven, among them a family of three.

Meanwhile, there are reports that dozens of Palestinians have surrendered in Jenin. The Xinhua General News Service reports that a senior Palestinian negotiator says that Israeli troops on Wednesday killed eight Palestinians after they surrendered. And dozens of Palestinians appealed Wednesday to UN Secretary General Kofi Annan and other world organizations to intervene as soon as possible, after the Israeli army rejected their request of surrender.

Guest:

  • Kamel Jaber, Jenin citizen.
