Saturday, 23 February 2002
After renewed violence in the West Bank left six Israeli soldiers dead, Israel responded with a large scale retaliatory raid on Palestinian areas which killed 17 people. In other news, former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and a group of retired army generals declared their intention to rally public support behind a plan calling for a unilateral Israeli pullout from the Gaza Strip and most of the West Bank. In a related story, the Israeli Supreme Court accepted an emergency appeal from an Israeli-Arab member of the Knesset on behalf of thirty Palestinian families -- freezing the planned demolition of their homes in the Gaza strip until the legality of the action could be substantiated.
