Kafr Qasem, 1956; Beit Hanoun, 2006
"Predictably, the soldiers do kill Masarwa as he approaches the fence. Witnesses said that they saw his blood on the fence on Wednesday afternoon when everyone went out in mass to look. " Samia Halaby, MEMORIAL on the 50th Anniversary of the Kafr Qasem Massacre
The brave women of Beit Hanoun, who went to the mosque to protect their men, seeking sanctuary there from Israel's occupation army. Two of these women, as yet unidentified in the western press, were murdered, although they were unarmed. It must have been their indomitable will that provoked Israel's occupying army to fire tank shells at them.
