Israeli troops killed three Palestinian gunrunners in the Gaza Strip, drawing mortar fire on Jewish settlements. Soldiers shot at several youths spotted in an off-limits area of Rafah, on Gaza’s border with Egypt, killing three of them Saturday.

Hundreds of Jewish activists tried to march on the Temple Mount but were driven back by police. The turnout for Sunday’s religious rally in Jerusalem’s Old City was far lower than the organizers for the far-right group Revava had hoped, thanks to a heavy police presence aimed at preventing a riot by Palestinians at the Mount’s two mosques.
