Official IDF Source Confirms: Have Photos of Palestinians Killing 2 Palestinian Children

Official IDF Source Confirms: Have Photos of Palestinians Killing 2
Palestinian Children

Aaron Lerner Date: 23 May 2004

An official IDF source confirmed Amir Orens' 21 May story this afternoon to
IMRA that two Palestinian children who died in the Rafah procession incident
were murdered by Palestinian gunmen and that the IDF photographed the
shooting.

The official IDF source explained that the pictures have not been released
to the media because information derived from the photographs would
compromise security in the field at this time.

The following is a repeat of the excerpts from Oren's original article:

Inside Track / Rafah is a nightmare

By Amir Oren Haaretz 21 May 2004
www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/430200.html

... When the procession with armed men in its midst set out in the direction
of the forces, (the commander of the Gaza Division, Brigadier General
Shmuel) Zakaii tried to speak with the community leaders in Rafah. The head
of the Liaison and Coordination Administration, Colonel Poli Mordecai,
phoned Nasser Saraj, the head of the Civil Committee in the city. Had the
Liaison and Coordination Administration sufficed, they would not have needed
the tank commander. Saraj, a respected individual, formerly the
director-general of the Ministry of Trade and Industry in the Palestinian
Authority, listened to Colonel Mordecai's pleas, but took no steps to
prevent the disaster.

When men obeyed the calls over the loudspeakers to turn themselves in to the
IDF authorities (and to the intelligence people who wanted to question
them), they were confronted by members of the terror organizations, who
opened fire on them and killed two children. A senior officer in Gaza
reported yesterday that the IDF have in their possession pictures of this
incident, of Palestinians killing their children. He expressed amazement as
to why the army has refrained from publishing them.
