Update: Only One Terrorist Killed near Nirim

Israeli soldiers killed one terrorist and wounded another Monday when the terrorists were spotted laying an explosive device along the southern Gaza security fence. Earlier it was reported that two terrorists had been killed. During an ensuing search of the area by troops, terrorists opened fire, lightly wounding a soldier in the face.

The attempt to plant the explosive follows a period of relative calm in the Gaza area. There is concern that the number of terrorist incidents may rise in reaction to reports of direct negotiations continuing between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
