From the occupied Palestinian territories
The diplomatic convoy leaving Deheishe under fire
woken up in the early morning....
the news that the curfew is over … - "why should we wait for them
to pick us up? Let's just go, right?"
We hear other tanks approaching, yet again. There are dozens and dozens of shots, all sorts of explosions. They completely sweep the road where we all were walking just a few minutes before, talking and playing together with the children from the camp. As soon as we put our noses outside the door, we see the fourteen armored cars from the diplomatic service approaching.
vieram nos carros, abriram o caminho aos israelitas..."
Bastards! They came with the tanks, they asked the Israelis to open the road for them … - We are furious. Then, there are no more tanks around, and we start to discuss with the diplomats in order to include an ambulance in the convoy. There is a lot of confusion.
and Gkd decide to remain … we have work to finish with indymedia Palestine.
Report from the United Nation Clinic, next to the cultural center IBDAA. Deheishe Camp, Bethlehem.
6 pm : A pregnant woman from Deheishe has come to the clinic feeling the first spasms. Doctors helped her to deliver the child, but the newborn was sick. Both the mother and the baby were in need of being urgently brought in a proper hospital, but the Israeli army told the clinic that the ambulance did not have the permission to go. As a consequence, the child died two hours later.
Today, during the fighting, three 15 years old boys were wounded by the IDF soldiers. One at his bolt, one at the wrist, and one at the neck. They are all under care at the UN clinic.

Today, one of the ambulances of the UN clinic was aimed at by IDF soldiers, and was hit by machine-gun fire. Several windows were smashed, but the car is still going. At the moment, there is a severe lack of ambulances in Palestine. Palestinians are asking for medicine, and they ask that health personnel will not be impeded to bring help to those in need.
