Israeli forces were shelling Wednesday afternoon the Palestinian towns of Khan Younes and Rafah in the Gaza Strip, according to Palestinian security sources.
They added that armed confrontations were taking place in the Housan village near Bethlehem between Palestinians and Israeli troops.
Jewish settlers attacked on the same day Palestinians near the Ofra settlement, injuring two brothers, Samer and Iyad Farhat, said the sources.
Earlier in the day, five Palestinians were killed and seven injured when an Israeli tank hit civilians driving on a road between Rafah and Khan Younes.
