Two Israelis were killed and dozens wounded when two Palestinian gunmen opened fire in a northern Israeli city. The two terrorists were shot dead after firing into a crowd in Afula late Tuesday morning. The attack took place near the bus station and the adjacent open air market. Islamic Jihad and the Al-Aksa Brigade, a group affiliated with Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat’s Fatah movement, claimed responsibility for the attack.
