GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip, Sept. 24 â€” Israeli tanks backed by helicopters stormed into Gaza City early Tuesday and battled Palestinian gunmen in clashes that left nine Palestinians dead and 24 injured, hospital officials said. Meanwhile, the siege of Yasser Arafatâ€™s offices continued, after talks on Monday between Palestinian and Israeli officials failed to produce a compromise.
AL AQSA LEADER KILLED
One of the nine men killed was Mohammed Kishkho, 45, a local leader of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades militia, linked to Yasser Arafatâ€™s Fatah movement. Kishkho died of shrapnel wounds suffered from tank shell explosion, said Dr. Moawia Hassanein at Gaza Cityâ€™s Shifa Hospital.
It seems like the IDF has given up on the Urban warfare tactics.
It's about time!
