Policemen Injured in Gaza Blast

Two Israeli policemen were injured in an bomb explosion Sunday near the Netzarim settlement in Gaza.

One of them, a police bomb sapper, suffered moderate injuries. The other, an officer, sustained light injuries.

The incident occurred when the two men were searching an area where a blast had injured a Netzarim resident Saturday as he walked near the settlement’s hothouses.

Security forces combing the scene found a hole in the settlement’s perimeter fence, which the terrorists had apparently penetrated.

In a separate incident, a large explosion was heard near the settlement K far Darom in the Gaza Strip. No further details are known.
