Gunmen threaten the Palestinian Authority in Jenin

Sunday, April 17, 2005 | 
In another sign of armed chaos in the Palestinian territories, gunmen marched through the streets of Jenin demanding jobs from the Palestinian Authority (PA). About 40 terrorists from the Al Aksa Martyrs Brigade, which is part of the ruling Fatah movement, fired in the air and threatened to kill PA parliamentarians if their demands are not met. “There will be blood and then our only language will be the bullet," said the local Al Aksa leader Zakariye Zubeidi, who is on Israel’s most wanted list. The gunmen shut down a government building after sending workers home. Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas has vowed to restore law and order, but he’s proven powerless against the armed gangs that rule the streets.
