"Gaza - Palestinian masses encircled the home of Ibrahim Juma, an Islamic Jihad activist, in the Gaza Strip after receiving a telephone contact that he has to evacuate the house immediately along with his family because the Israeli air force would bomb it.
Local sources said that an IOF officer told Juma over the phone that he has to evacuate his home north of Gaza city within half an hour. However, the word spread and a larg number of people headed to Juma's home and surrounded it foiling the Israeli air raid.
This is the first time that the IOF command returns to such a policy since a truce between the IOF and Palestinian resistance factions was agreed almost two months ago.
Palestinian masses came up with this idea to block Israeli air strikes that flattened tens of civilian homes before the truce went into effect. "
