Palestinians fired six Qassam rockets at Israel late Thursday and early Friday, causing no injuries, Israel Radio reported. This came in response to an Israeli copter attack Thursday evening that killed three Palestinians near the fence ringing the Gaza Strip.
According to Israeli sources, the Palestinians were seen crawling towards the fence in the area adjacent to the "Kisufim" crossing in central Gaza Strip. Palestinians said the three were Islamic Jihad activists.
In the West Bank, an Israeli soldier was lightly wounded by Palestinian fire during a patrol in the West Bank city of Nablus, Israel Radio reported Friday. Overnight, troops arrested two Palestinians in Ramallah.
