WATCH FULL SHOW

The fighting in the city of Nablus and the Jenin refugee camp is continuing. U.S.-made Israeli attack helicopters are bombing the refugee camp. Israeli officials are estimating that more than 100 Palestinians have been killed in Jenin alone and Al-Jazeera reports that nine Israeli soldiers have also died there.

Residents say that Israeli troops are using women and old men as human shields, army bulldozers are flattening homes and bodies are littering the streets. A 14-year old student told the Times of London that Israeli soldiers lined up 8 men and shot them to death.

Guest:

  • Ameer Makhoul, director of the Union of Arab Community Based Associations, in the Jenin refugee camp
