A grenade explosion in the market place at Dier el Balah in the Gaza Strip wounded two Israeli solders, an Israeli civilian and eight local residents today. Security forces have started an investigation. An Israeli border policeman discovered the bodies of two Arab terrorists near Kibbutz Baram close to the Lebanese border last night. Weapons and sabotage devices were found near the bodies. The terrorists were believed to have been killed by their own explosives while on a sabotage mission.
