Three Hamas terrorists die in explosions

Three Hamas terrorists in the Gaza Strip died while handling explosives.

Two terrorists were killed in a Hamas training exercise on Thursday and another died Friday.

In a separate incident, Gaza officials said Israeli troops shot dead a 60-year old farmer who had approached the border fence with Israel. Israeli officials were checking the report.

Terrorists in Gaza fired at least three missiles into Israel’s south; all of them hit open areas and caused no injuries.

In the West Bank, a 13-year old Israeli boy traveling in a car near Hebron was injured by shrapnel. Army officials were investigating the incident, which appears to have been caused by a roadside explosive device. Al-Aksa Brigades claimed responsibility for the attack.
