Three Israeli soldiers and six Palestinians were wounded in clashes in the Gaza Strip after Israeli army bulldozers demolished buildings in the Rafah refugee camp. Palestinian Authority officials called the action an incursion into their territory, but the Israeli army said the area is under Israeli security control and the buildings had been used by Palestinian gunmen to attack Israeli troops along the Israeli-Egyptian border.
