Palestinian demonstrators denounce the riots at the Gaza-Israel border.

Hamas Retaliates
For Gaza Riots

Tel Aviv (JTA) — In what was
described as retaliation for Is-
rael's handling of the riots at a
Gaza Strip checkpoint, Islamic
militants shot and killed an
Israeli officer near the Rafah
border crossing between Gaza
and Egypt.
The incident occurred after the
Israel Defense Force received a
warning from electronic censor-
ing equipment that a border fence
on the frontier between Gaza and
Egypt had been tampered with.
When a unit was sent to in-
vestigate, they found a ladder
leaning against the electronically
monitored fence.
Shots rang out from a nearby
home when the officer, Captain
Motti Ovadia, got out of his jeep
to inspect the fence.
Cpt. Ovadia, 23, of Kibbutz
Yotvata in the southern Negev,
received two wounds to the head
and was rushed to a hospital in
Ashkelon. He died of his injuries
within a few hours.
Other members of his unit re-
turned the fire, but the assailants
After being informed of the in-
cident, Palestinian police began

A leaflet signed by members of
the militant Hamas movement
was found at the scene. It said the
attack had been carried out "as
the first in a chain of retaliations

for the Israeli massacre of Gaza
residents" at the Erez checkpoint

and border police.
In other unrest, an Israeli bor-
der policeman suffered head in-
juries after rioting erupted in the
West Bank town of Hebron.
Israeli police responded to the
violent demonstrations by firing
rubber bullets and tear gas.
Israeli security officials imposed
a curfew on the town, which has
been a hotbed of unrest since the
Feb. 25 killings of 29 Palestinians
by an Israeli settler.
