Scotsman.com News – International – Israeli army blasts home of Hamas MP

ISRAEL’S army killed eight Palestinians yesterday, two of them while blowing apart a house belonging to a woman Hamas MP, after concluding a violent six-day incursion into the town of Beit Hanoun in its biggest operation in the Gaza Strip in a year. Eight people were wounded in an attack on MP Jamila Shanti’s house in Jebalya, south of Beit Hanoun. Ms Shanti, who was not at home at the time, was the organiser of a march on Friday in which Hamas women supporters served as human shields enabling the escape of dozens of fighters from a mosque encircled by the Israeli army. Her sister-in-law was killed yesterday along with a 23-year-old man. Khaled Radi, a spokesman for the Hamas-run health ministry, said: “What happened was clearly revenge and reprisal for the march.”
