Israeli strike kills two in Palestinian refugee camp

TWO-DAY RAID The attacks continued as moderate Palestinian presidential hopeful Mahmoud Abbas courted support from the Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade


In his address, Abbas referred to the 2002 battle, in which 52 Palestinians and 23 Israeli soldiers were killed, recalling that Yasser Arafat called the camp "Jeningrad."

The crowd responded with a healthy cheer.

"When we demand security," Abbas said, "we demand it for all our citizens, including our wanted brothers who also deserve a life of security and safety," he said, in a reference to Zubeidi and his group, evoking another big cheer.
