PA arrests Hamas members in relation to attack on settlers
Palestinian fighters fired a mortar round from the Gaza Strip on Wednesday narrowly missing a kindergarten in a kibbutz in southern Israel, the military said. "A mortar shell fired from the Gaza Strip fell near a nursery school in a kibbutz in the Shaar HaNegev region," a spokeswoman said, according to AFP. There were no injuries or damage.
Earlier on Wednesday, the Palestinian Authority said it had detained a number of Hamas activists believed to be responsible for two shooting attacks in the West Bank last week, one of which killed four settlers.
