Abstract (Document Summary)

A general closure has been imposed on Judea, Samaria, and the Gaza Strip, and will remain in effect until 2 a.m. Friday. During this period, Palestinians will be barred from entering Israel and no merchandise will be permitted into the country. The Allenby Bridge and Rafah border crossings will remain open, operating on a Shabbat schedule, and consideration will be given to humanitarian cases.

Early yesterday evening, Palestinians in Khan Yunis fired three mortar shells at the Gush Katif settlement of Gadid. The shells landed between the hothouses and homes. No one was wounded but one of the hothouses was lightly damaged. The attack occurred after several days of respite from mortar fire in the area.

Police are also waiting for results of tests carried out on the suicide bomber to determine whether he belonged to Hamas, which at first stated he was from Gaza but then changed its claim, saying he was from Nablus. Security officials did not rule out the possibility that another suicide bomber affiliated with Hamas from Gaza may have already entered Israel and is planning to perpetrate a terror attack.
