A RELATIVE KISSES PALESTINIAN TAMER KHDAIR IN GAZA CITY HOSPITAL.
A relative kisses Tamer Khdair, 19, an armed Palestinian who was shot
dead by Israeli troops in a Gaza Strip border zone, in Gaza City
hospital February 1, 2003. An Israeli military source said soldiers
spotted an armed Palestinian approaching the Gaza border with Egypt
near the volatile town of Rafah and opened fire. The man was carrying
an assault rifle and ammunition clips, the source said. The Democratic
Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) identified the dead man as
a member of the group, which has carried out attacks on Israelis in a
28-month-old Palestinian uprising for statehood.
