Hated checkpoints top list of Palestinian targets
By Phil Reeves in
Palestinians say that last month, a Palestinian man, Nasar Salim Rantisi, was shot in the leg and bled to death at the checkpoint, near Ramallah, when soldiers denied him medical care. Jihad Yaghi, 23, said this week the soldiers at Ein Ariq tried to force him to crouch and creep beneath a waist-high wire, stretched across the road before allowing him to pass. "They humiliate us," he said. "I am very happy about the attack."
