A three-year-old Arab boy was killed and two other children were injured this morning when two hand grenades exploded in their midst. The grenades hurled by Arab terrorists at a passing Israeli army vehicle, missed the car and landed where the children were playing. The incident occurred at the entrance to the Jebaliya refugee camp in the Gaza Strip. None of the Israelis in the patrol were hurt. Later in the day, an Arab terrorist was killed at the same site as he was about to throw a hand grenade at an Israeli patrol.
