Israeli helicopters struck arms factories in the Gaza Strip. Two Gaza City factories were destroyed in strikes last Friday, and a third was destroyed Saturday.

British lawmakers said Israeli troops fired at them during a Gaza Strip tour. The three legislators said a machine gun fired at them from an Israeli watchtower when they arrived Saturday in a marked U.N. convoy at the Rafah refugee camp, in southern Gaza.
