Bomb Explodes in Path of Settler Convoy in Gaza, No Injuries
A bomb exploded in the path of a convoy of Jewish settlers being escorted by Israeli troops in the Gaza Strip on Monday evening, but there were no injuries, the army said.
The convoy was leaving the settlement of Netzarim near Gaza City, a focal point for clashes during the wave of unrest in the Palestinian territories, when the bomb went off.
Five days ago, a bus carrying Jewish settlers near Khan Yunis in the Gaza Strip was damaged when a roadside bomb blew up but the passengers escaped unharmed.
Israel has been on high alert for possible terror attacks by the militant Islamic movement Hamas, which is violently opposed to peace with the Jewish state and has carried out a series of suicide bombings against its civilians since the signing of the 1993 Oslo peace accords -- JERUSALEM (AFP)
