Israel Considers Full Reoccupation of Gaza Strip; Weekend Raid Kills 14 Palestinians and Injures Dozens

Israel is considering fully reoccupying the Gaza Strip. This comes after a massive Sunday invasion of Gaza City that left 14 dead and over 50 injured. In addition Israel locked down the West Bank and Gaza Strip last night and closed all border crossings.

The moves came just days before Israel’s general election on Tuesday. Prime Minister Gen. Ariel Sharon is predicted to defeat the new leader of the Labour Party, Amram Mitzna, who has pledged to withdraw from the Gaza Strip within a year.

Sunday’s invasion of Gaza City marked the deepest raid into Gaza City in the two years of the second intifada. We go Gaza City for a report.

Guest:

  • Kristen Schurr, journalist living in Gaza. She is currently in Gaza City.
