Extremist Jewish settlers attacked Palestinian houses in Tel Rumeida close to us last night in revenge at hearing the news that the three missing teenage settlers have been found dead. Israeli soldiers turned out in force to protect the settlers. One Palestinian was injured by live fire. Similar attacks took place in many of the villages around Hebron. In Halhul, next to Hebron, huge military operations took place and the 2 houses of the suspected kidnappers were demolished with explosives. There is still no evidence to link these deaths with any individuals or organisation. Bombing raids took place in Gaza to punish Hamas and Israeli cabinet members are threatening targeted assassinations of Hamas leaders.
