A Palestinian policeman walks by a mural amongst the debris inside a naval installation in Gaza City, in the Gaza Strip, Sunday, May 20, 2001. The naval compound was destroyed by Israeli war planes Friday night. Israel said it used the F-16 war planes _ the first time since the 1967 Mideast war _ to send a message to the Palestinian Authority to rein in militants behind suicide bombings, but Israeli politicians and commentators questioned whether the attacks would have any effect. The Palestinians have said that destroying the Authority's security forces and infrastructure would only exacerbate the situation.
