Palestinians Warn Gaza Ambush will Provoke New Cycle of Violence

Published November 22nd, 2000 - 02:00 GMT

Palestinian preventative security chief in the Gaza Strip Mohammed Dahlan said Wednesday that the killing of four Palestinians in an Israeli army ambush would lead to a "new cycle of violence." 

"It will raise the tension and there will be a response from the people. It will take us to a new cycle of violence, it will not be received by applauding the killers," Dahlan told AFP. 

The Israeli army said the four were killed in a gunbattle after it set up a roadblock to arrest a Fateh activist wanted for anti-Israeli attacks. 

A senior Palestinian security official earlier called the incident "a crime and an assassination" -- GAZA CITY (AFP)
