Israeli Casino Hit by Tank Shells

JERICHO, WEST BANK - Oasis Casino, a desert casino that raked in millions of dollars for Palestinians before hostilities with Israelis erupted was shelled overnight November 12, causing extensive damage to the building's top floor offices.

The casino closed October 31 after a month of instability in the territories. During the previous two years, the October average for the casino was about 2,500 visitors a day, primarily Israeli clientele, according to public relations representative Ilan Pilo. However, the recent spate of rioting, which quickly elicited a ban on Israeli travel to the autonomous areas, slowed business to a trickle. As Pilo explained, "At the beginning of the riots, about 100 people a day would visit. Lately, however, the casino has been quite empty. The last few days, we had maybe a few visitors per day."

This is the first time Israel has caused serious damage to the casino, a facility that is an important source of Palestinian Authority revenue. During recent weeks of clashes in the territories, the Israel Defensive Forces (IDF) has fired at buildings near the facility, but has been careful not to harm the building.

The $150 million casino-hotel complex shattered by tank rounds, small rockets and machine guns, leaving smoked glass blocks and jagged holes.

Casino security chief Alexander Kiss said the night-time barrage originated from Vered Jericho, a Jewish settlement on a rocky hill looming over the world's oldest known town, and an open area on its southern outskirts.
