Hundreds of Palestinians on Saturday looted Palestinian police positions at the Erez crossing into Israel, drawing Israeli warning fire, witnesses said. The looters walked off with scrap metal and furniture. The Israeli army said it was checking the report of shooting at the crossing, which has largely been closed for the past week. Since the fall of Gaza to Hamas, Israel has permitted some senior Fatah officials to pass through Erez, via Israel, to the West Bank.
