A Palestinian suicide bomber lightly wounded two Israeli soldiers. Hamas claimed responsibility for Monday’s attack at the Erez Crossing between Israel and the Gaza Strip. The suicide bomber left behind a note saying he was avenging the deaths of five Palestinian children last week and Israel’s killing last Friday of Hamas military leader Mahmoud Abu Hanoud.
