Palestinians Kill Three Israeli Soldiers at Netzarim in Gaza

(Ha'aretz/Yediot Ahronot-Hebrew) Arnon Regular and Nadav Shragai - Three Israeli soldiers - two of them women - were killed and two others were wounded in an infiltration of an army base by at least one Palestinian at Netzarim before dawn Friday during heavy fog. The infiltrator or infiltrators crossed the exterior fence, threw grenades, and opened fire on soldiers sleeping in pre-fab buildings. The dead soldiers are Staff Sgt. Alon Avrahami, 20, from Or Yehuda; Sgt. Adi Osman, 19, from Kfar Sava; and Sgt. Sarit Shneor, 19, from Shoham. In a separate shooting attack after nightfall Thursday, three Israelis - two women and a young boy - were wounded when two gunmen opened fire at a car on a road near the Kissufim crossing point between Gaza and Israel. Also in Gaza, Palestinians fired two mortars at Neve Dekalim. In the West Bank, a Palestinian man was killed in an explosion that occurred while he was in the process of preparing a bomb, and a second was wounded in a separate "work accident" Thursday in Ein Yabrud, next to Ramallah.
