The report, released by the SIS` Palestinian National Information Center (PNIC) asserted that between December 20 and December 26, 2005 Israeli forces killed 5 Palestinians, injured 32, arrested 98 others, and carried out many violations varying between house shelling, invasions, breaking into homes, land bulldozing and curbing of free movement.
