Israel troops foil militant infiltration attempt
(dpa) - Israel troops foiled an Palestinian attempt early Thursday afternoon to infiltrate the Kerem Séalom crossing point on the borders of Israel, Egypt and the Gaza Strip, Israel Radio reported.
Initial accounts said soldiers spotted three gunmen trying to enter the terminal. In the ensuing exchange of fire, one of the would-be infiltrators was killed, one was wounded and one fled.
Palestinian gunmen successfully infiltrated the Nahal Oz crossing point, in the northern Gaza Strip, last week, killing two civilians.
