Palestinian sources reported Monday that at least six Palestinians were wounded Monday in an exchange of fire with IDF troops in Nablus. A large IDF force entered the West Bank city Monday in response to the afternoon's suicide bombing that killed at least seven people in Tel Aviv, shoring up the troops who had been operating in Nablus since Sunday.

Earlier Monday, the troops were under fire from protesters after taking over one of the local homes. The soldiers opened fire on a crowd of Palestinians, who after discovering the troops, began throwing rocks toward the soldiers. Several crowd members also fired pistols toward troops during the exchange. Palestinian hospital officials said that a youth was shot in the neck during the skirmish and was in moderate condition. A second person was lightly wounded, they said.
