Palestinian forces fired an anti-tank missile at an Israeli tank on the Israel-Gaza border on Wednesday morning. No Israelis were injured in the incident. The Windbreaker tank defense system was activated and no damage was reported. Israeli forces identified suspects in the area and returned fire.
Also on Wednesday morning, Israeli soldiers on the Israel-Egypt border near the Carmit position north of Eilat opened fire after hearing gunshots from within the Sinai Peninsula. Soldiers who were traveling on a bus on the Philadelphi route identified three infiltrators and arrested them, Army Radio reported.
They heard shots from within Sinai, apparently a firefight between Egyptian police and infiltrators, and opened fire, even though the shots were probably not directed at the Israeli force. No Israelis were injured in the incident, but Army Radio reported that there were injuries on the Egyptian side.
Late Tuesday night, two Israelis were lightly injured in an apparent shooting attack in Samaria. Two residents of Kedumim reported that shots were fired at them as they passed through the Yitzhar Junction. The two sustained light injuries when their vehicle's windshield shattered as a result of the shooting.
Traces of bullet remnants were found in their vehicle. Military and police forces arrived at the scene to search for the shooters, and it is thought that the shots were fired from a passing car.
