Defense Chief: Tough Action Against Gaza Opponents

Tuesday, 16 August 2005 12:00 AM

Israel security forces clashed with Jewish extremists attempting to block moving vans from entering Neve Dekalim, the largest of the Gaza settlements.

Commander Ben Ishai said police will remove the resistors to allow the shipping containers delivered to the settlers who had ordered them in preparation for their evacuation.

Police said they arrested several protestors who had scuffled with police and soldiers.

Elsewhere, Israeli troops fired warning shots at Palestinian youths who rushed a wall outside a settlement to place a flag from the militant Hamas on it. Some 200 Hamas activists and supporters were in the crowd which was addressed by Hamas spokesman Younis al-Astal who told them the evacuation from Gaza is only the first step. He said eventually Jerusalem and, as he put it, every inch of Palestinian land from the sea to the Jordan river would be liberated. He said resistance is the only path to victory for the Palestinian people.
