The Palestinian Authority said it prevented a terrorist attack Wednesday on the border with the Gaza Strip. P.A. policemen stationed on the Gaza side of the Karni border crossing spotted a suspicious car, and opened fire. The vehicle’s occupants shot back, wounding three policemen, and then fled. P.A. officials said the car probably was loaded with explosives to be detonated next to the Israeli installation at Karni, which terrorists have targeted repeatedly in the past. It was not immediately clear to which Palestinian faction the escaped gunmen belonged.
