TEL AVIV — Hundreds of Palestinians stranded at an Israeli border crossing while trying to flee Gaza were caught in the crossfire of a shootout between Israeli soldiers and Hamas gunmen yesterday that left at least one dead and 10 wounded.
"If Hamas succeeds in getting close, there could be a massacre. They are very brutal. Whoever is there is already on the blacklist," he said.
Mr. Habib said the most pressing humanitarian issue is the critical condition of several dozen sick Palestinians who need to travel to Israel or abroad for treatment.
