Gaza brake on bombs

Gaza, Aug. 24 (Reuters): Palestinian President Yasser Arafat’s security chief in the Gaza Strip today ordered steps to stop militant groups firing rockets and mortar bombs at Israelis, security sources said.

A statement issued by Major-General Abdel-Razek al-Majaydeh said forces under his command had been instructed to “maintain security and stability in all border areas, especially the (northern) Beit Hanoun area, and to prevent violations”.

Palestinian security sources said the directive was aimed at halting mortar fire at Jewish settlements and the launching of Qassam rockets into nearby Israel, mainly by Hamas.
