Welcome to Palestine Today, a service of the International Middle East Media Center, www.imemc.org, for Thursday November 8th, 2012.

Israelis military tanks invade areas in Gaza and settlers attack Palestinian farmers in the west Bank. These stories, and more, coming up, stay tuned.

Egyptian security sources reported that the army and the police, operating against criminal armed groups in Sinai, will start in the coming days, a large operation that is meant at resuming the demolition of border tunnels with Gaza.

Egypt halted its operations approximately 30 days ago, and is now preparing to continue the demolition after it pinpointed 50 tunnels considered to be “the most dangerous” among 2500 tunnels in the area.

The Kuwaiti “Al-Rai Paper” reported that the Egyptian security forces managed to pinpoint the tunnels that are “specifically used for smuggling weapons and Jihadist fighters between Gaza and Sinai”.

It added that those tunnels are different than tunnels used for smuggling food supplies and goods, as they have bigger ventilation systems and are used as hideouts for Jihadist fighters who sometimes hide there for weeks at a time due to Egyptian operations against them.

Inside the Gaza Strip, Palestinian sources reported that eight Israeli tanks and four armored military bulldozers invaded, on Thursday at dawn, Abasan town, east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, and fired smoke bombs and rounds of live ammunition.

News Sources said that Palestinian fighters fired several mortars at the invading tanks and army bulldozers. Israeli drones were heard and seen flying over the area.

Elsewhere, Israeli settlers attacked Palestinian farmers near the southern West Bank city of Hebron. Famers told local news that armed settlers attacked on Thursday midday them and stole their olives that they harvested today.

In another incident earlier in the day Israeli army bulldozers uprooted around 30 olive trees that belong to farmers from Nahlaeen village near the southern West Bank city of Bethlehem on Thursday morning. Witnesses said that soldiers surrounded the village and did not allow farmers to reach their lands as bulldozers uprooted the trees.

And that’s all for today from the IMEMC News; this was the Thursday November 8th, news round-up from the Occupied Palestinian Territories. For more news and updates please visit our website at www.imemc.org. Today’s report has been brought to you by Hussam Qassis and me, Ghassan Bannoura.
