(JENIN, West Bank) - Palestinian sources reported Thursday that after several storehouses for households and sponge products caught on fire, the Israeli army obstructed Palestinian firefighters and rescue teams from reaching the area; an issue that increased the damage and losses.

The storehouses that belong to merchants Omar Fathi Amour and Khaled Al Nabulsy, are located in Barta’a village surrounded by the Annexation Wall near the northern West Bank city of Jenin.

Majdi Qabha, head of the Barta’a Village Council, stated that the residents rushed to the scene and managed, later on, to put the fire off, but as firefighters were not allowed through, the losses were estimated by 1 Million NIS.

Qabha added that the residents initially called Israeli firefighters as the station is close to the village but the Israeli army prevented them from crossing into the Palestinian village.

Later on, Palestinian firefighters were informed of the fire who rushed to the scene and managed to control the fire.

So? Let the arabs burn. Only G-D's chosen people should be considered first.

Editor: Are you for real?  You would actually state that as the wildfires burn in Israel?  Bad karma if so man...

The stories of atrocities, massacres, murders, denials of rights and genocide being documented on SN will be good documentation for the war crimes tribunal which is surely in store for Israel. Perhaps someday in the future the families deprived of their right to guard their personal property from bulldozers and fire will be reimbursed by world court justice. I think that the world the entire world that stands by and lets this continue is culpable but most especially the USA who supplies the gun and drives the get away car.
