Iraq keeps on helping Palestinians financially & heartily

BAGHDAD - Iraqi President Saddam Hussein pledged 25,000 dollars for each home destroyed by the Israeli army in the West Bank refugee camp of Jenin, the official INA agency reported Sunday.

"Saddam Hussein ordered 25,000 dollars be allocated to each house destroyed in Jenin by the Zionists criminals," during a cabinet meeting, INA said.

Saddam last week pledged 10 million euros (8.7 million dollars) in aid to the Palestinians after announcing a month-long suspension of oil exports in retaliation for the Israeli offensive on the West Bank.

Iraq, where scores of pro-Palestinian demonstrations have taken place since the Israeli blitz began on March 29, says 6.5 million volunteers have been mobilised to "liberate Palestine."
