Three IDF troops were lightly wounded by gunfire early Thursday morning in the Ein Beit Ilma refugee camp in Nablus, and an IAF strike wounded four Hamas gunmen who approached troops in Gaza. The wounded soldiers received first aid and were taken to the hospital for further treatment. Meanwhile, Hamas said its fighters had been monitoring the movement of IDF soldiers near the Gaza town of Khouza, east of Khan Yunis, when they were targeted by an IDF drone. The army said it had targeted the gunmen after they'd gotten close to troops on the ground. During operations in the Nablus area overnight Wednesday, two explosive devices and three makeshift grenades were thrown at the troops. Another bomb exploded under an IDF vehicle in the Casbah. No casualties or damage were reported in any of the attacks. In addition, IDF troops arrested seven Palestinian fugitives in the West Bank overnight - one near Ramallah, and six others south of Hebron.
