Six Palestinians killed by Israeli fire
Israel killed six Palestinians on Saturday -- three in the Gaza Strip and three in the occupied West Bank, Israeli military sources and Palestinian medics said. According to Reuters, an Israeli military spokeswoman said three Palestinians died in an air strike and ground fire on suspicion they were trying to infiltrate from Gaza Strip.
Palestinian medics and witnesses said three gunmen died in a confrontation in the West Bank. This came two days after an Israeli settler was shot dead near Nablus.
