Palestinian terrorists killed an Israeli in the West Bank. Yevgeny Rider, 28, from the Hermesh settlement, was shot in the forehead Monday while driving, and a 16-year-old passenger was wounded. Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the attack. In the Gaza Strip, a Palestinian woman was caught trying to smuggle a bomb into Israel through the Erez border crossing. Media reports described her as a member of the Palestinians’ ruling Fatah Party who was due to receive treatment in an Israeli hospital.
