Israeli troops killed two Palestinians who tried to sneak into Israel from the Gaza Strip. Several Palestinians were intercepted climbing over the boundary fence Monday morning. In addition to the two men killed, another Palestinian was arrested and at least three others fled into Israeli territory. It was unclear whether the men meant to pick up explosives inside Israel to carry out terrorist attacks or merely were seeking work, Ha’aretz reported.
