6 Killed in Failed Attack in Gaza

Palestinian Gunmen Attempted Assault on Israeli Checkpoint. Palestinian gunmen in jeeps disguised to look like Israeli army vehicles tried to attack an Israeli military checkpoint at a border crossing in the Gaza Strip on Saturday, but the operation failed and resulted in the deaths of at least six Palestinians by gunfire and a large explosion, Israeli military and Palestinian security officials said. Four of the assailants and two officers from Palestinian security forces were killed in the 10:15 a.m. attack at the Erez border crossing, the main northern transit point between the Gaza Strip and Israel and the site of a large industrial area where thousands of Palestinians are employed. At least 15 people were injured. Most of them were wounded when one of the jeeps exploded outside a Palestinian security post, killing the two officers, witnesses and Palestinian officials said. No Israelis were injured in the incident. Full Story
