Download PDF for this date

At least four Palestinians were killed and scores were wounded by Israeli security forces Sunday, as riots raged in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

The wounded include a 16-month-old baby girl in Nablus who lost an eye to a rubber bullet.

Arab sources claimed five fatalities. The Israel Defense Force would confirm only four.

In Kalkilya, an Arab was murdered Saturday night by masked gunmen, for alleged collaboration with Israeli authorities. He was identified as Yussuf Milhim, 53, secretary of the municipality.
