Israeli soldiers mutilate, deface Palestinians after murdering them

Occupied Jerusalem: 24 February, 2003 (IAP News): Israeli occupation soldiers reportedly mutilated and defaced the bodies of at least two Palestinians after killing them in Gaza yesterday.

Eyewitness said Israeli soldiers used axes and bayonets to mutilate the Palestinians after they were killed by Israeli troops during an army incursion into the Beit Hanon neighborhood north of Gaza City Sunday.

The Jazeera Satellite Television on Monday screened a footage showing Israeli soldiers mutilating the body of at least one Palestinian, apparently using axes and large knifes.

The PA Television also showed one body whose head was badly mutilated by axing and knifing.

The Israeli army refused to comment on the footage, saying only that “these things happen in war.”

Israel is using its full military power against defenseless Palestinian civilians for the purpose of forcing them to come to terms with the Jewish colonialist occupation of the Palestinian homeland.

Since the outbreak of the Palestinian intifada nearly 2 and a half years ago, the Israeli army and paramilitary Jewish terrorists killed and murdered more than 2000 Palestinians, many of them children, minors and women.

The Israeli occupation army also destroyed thousands of Palestinian homes and ravaged the bulk of the civilian infrastructure in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

The United States and much of the international community - while at the same time pontificating about launching a "war on terror" - have done next to nothing to stop or even restrain the Israeli army rampage against Palestinian population centers
