      Three Palestinian terrorists were killed last night on their way to an attack in Jewish Gaza. Shortly after 9 PM, IDF forces detected them crawling towards the Gefen Checkpoint near Moshav Netzer Hazani, and immediately closed off the main entrance to the Gush Katif communities. The soldiers then began to pursue and surround them, and soon killed three of them. A fourth terrorist escaped. The road was closed for approximately two hours.

      In other Palestinian terrorism attacks in Gaza last night, a mortar shell landed and exploded in Kfar Darom, another two were fired at Netzarim, gunfire was directed at Israeli Army positions near Kfar Darom and N'vei Dekalim, and an anti-tank shell was launched towards Ganei Tal; no one was hurt in these incidents.

      This morning, two Israeli soldiers were lightly wounded in a two-pronged attack on their convoy on the Netzarim-Karni road. A roadside bomb was activated as the convoy drove by, while simultaneously gunfire was directed at them.
