Palestinian gunmen fired shots at the Jerusalem neighborhood of Gilo, moderately wounding one resident. After Palestinian gunmen fired shots at Gilo two weeks ago, Israeli tanks were poised to move into the neighboring Arab village of Beit Jalla, from where the fire originated. Israel called off the incursion after Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat called upon the gunmen to stop shooting.
