A Live Report From the Third Ground Zero: A Massacre Revealed As Palestinians Search for Their Loved Ones Amidst the Wreckage of Jenin Refugee Camp

This is how the article begins:

When they found the body it was in pieces and so they gathered it all up out of the rubble, great chunks of blackened, rotting flesh with bits of bone sticking out, and piled them up on a blanket. The smell made us retch and stumble away, gasping for clean air. The Palestinians said the putrefying flesh and bone was Mohammed Massoud Abu Sb’a.

Those words were written about the Jenin refugee camp by Independent reporter, Justin Huggler. The United Nations special envoy to the Middle East, Terje Roed-Larsen, described the scene as “horrific beyond belief.” He said Israel’s actions were unjustifiable, no matter what the military objective. He told Israeli Army Radio, “Jenin will forever be a blot on the history of the state of Israel.” Aid workers and human rights monitors have started to call the destroyed refugee camp “Ground Zero.”
