Killings Continue in Middle East

Saturday, 25 November 2000 12:00 AM

The dead included two Palestinian men in Beit Qalil, a West Bank village near Nablus, a 22-year-old man from the Gaza Strip town of Rafah, a 15-year-old boy from the West Bank city of Jenin and a 20-year-old man from Qalqilya.

Thousands of mourners buried the bodies of three Palestinians killed Thursday and Friday in confrontations with Israeli forces. Among those buried was Ibrahim Bani Odeh, the Hamas activist assassinated by a bomb planted in his car in Nablus on Thursday. Angry Palestinians in the West Bank city of Nablus killed one Palestinian accused of "collaborating" with alleged Israeli efforts to assassinate Odeh.

In other news from the region, a senior Palestinian security official Friday denied Israeli charges that his preventive security forces are planning to form secret cells to carry out attacks against Israel. Mohamed Dahlan – one of PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat's top security aides – said his forces were not aiding terrorism against the Jewish state.

"If the Israelis don't want to believe us, it is up to them," Dahlan said. "They only care when their people are killed, and they do not care about the others."
