Palestinian militants kill
Israelis; Israel stages air
JERUSALEM (AP) — Palestinian mili
tants struck at Israeli civilians Tuesday with a
suicide bombing on a bus, a roadside ambush
in the West Bank and a restaurant shooting in
Israel’s largest city, leaving live Israelis and
two Palestinian assailants dead.
Before dawn Wednesday, Israeli tanks and
troops moved into northern Gaza, witnesses
said, after Palestinians fired two rockets that
hit an Israeli town for the first time. Two
Palestinians were killed by tank fire, accord
ing to doctors. The Israeli military had no
immediate comment.
In raids earlier Tuesday in response to the
militant attacks, Israeli warplanes and heli
copters bombed seven separate Palestinian
government compounds and security com
plexes in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
Most had been abandoned in anticipation of
the Israeli strikes.
However, an Israeli raid in the West Bank
city of Ramallah killed three Palestinian
security officers in a car, one of whom was
wanted by Israel. Palestinian officials said.
The death toll has soared over the past
week amid violence that is erupting
round-the-clock. Sixty-three Palestinians
and 31 Israelis have died in one of the
deadliest weeks since fighting broke out
in September 2000.
In the Palestinian rocket attack late
Tuesday an infant received minor injuries and
a second child was slightly wounded when a
rocket exploded in their yard in Sderot.
Another rocket landed harmlessly in a field.
The homemade rockets were launched
from the area of Beit Hanoun, in the
northeast corner of the Gaza Strip, the
point closest to Sderot.
Mayor Eli Moyal lives in the neighbor
hood closest to Gaza. “Nothing is the
same as it was before,” he told Israel
Radio. “Now children cannot play peace
fully in their yards here.”
Before daybreak Wednesday, Israeli tanks
moved toward Beit Hanoun and nearby Beit
Lahiya, residents said. Tanks and bulldozers
cut roads and built barriers, they said. The
Israeli military had no immediate comment.
In southern Gaza, Israeli
tanks entered the village of
Karrara near Khan Younis, wit
nesses said.
Israeli forces arrested 27
Palestinians in overnight
sweeps, Palestinian security
officials said.
Israeli tanks moved into a
neighborhood at Gaza City’s
eastern edge and tore down
Palestinian checkpoints, witness
es said. Other tanks moved
toward the Rafah refugee camp
early Wednesday. The camp, on

Also, Israeli navy gunboats fired at a

City, witnesses said. Three Palestinian police
men were injured, one critically, when a shell
hit their car. they said. Ships also fired at
Arafat’s seaside Gaza headquarters, witness
es said. Arafat is confined to the West Bank
town of Ramallah by Israeli forces.

— Police say a local leader of
India’s governing party and
officials from a Hindu national
ist group linked to it led mobs
that burned to death 107
Muslims during religious riots.
Police reports obtained by
The Associated Press on
Tuesday named several impor
tant figures in two attacks in the
city of Ahmadabad, part of riots
that have killed 512 people.
Police officers wrote and
filed the reports on Sunday in
the neighborhood of Naroda,
where 65 Muslims were burned
to death as they slept by
Hindus who set the slum on
fire Friday morning; and in
Meghaninagar, where thou
sands of Hindus burned to
death 42 Muslims in their
homes Thursday night.
None of the men accused in
the reports could be contacted
for comment. They have been
avoiding police attempts to ques
tion them, said Deputy Police
Commissioner P.B. Gondya.
Called “first information
reports,” or FIRs, the docu
ments are the first step in an
Indian criminal investigation.
One report said nine people
including local Bharatiya
Janata Party leader Deepak
Patel headed Hindus who
burned to death 42 people,
including former Parliament
member Ahsan Jaffrey, in the
Muslim residential area known
as Gulbarg Society in
“These persons, armed with
weapons, led a mob of 20.(XX) to
22,000, which attacked Gulbarg
Society and set it ablaze,” said
the report by Kirit Erda, senior
inspectqr-in-charge of the
Meghaninagar police station.
“They first burned to death
18 residents and later burned
24 more persons in the same
place,” said Erda’s report, writ
ten in the Gujarati language.
A separate report dealing
with the Naroda killings
blamed members of the World
Hindu Council, closely linked
to the Bharatiya Janata Party,
which leads the Indian and
Gujarat state governments.
