Armed Palestinians in the Gaza Strip kidnapped an Israeli-Arab and wounded his wife, Palestinian sources said on Friday afternoon. The couple was visiting the northern Gaza town of Beit Lahiya for the Muslim holiday of Id al- Fitr, when the armed men got out of two cars and opened fire on the couple as they were making their way back to Israel. Palestinians identified the abducted man as Riyadh al-Louh. His wife, Khatima al-Louh, was shot in the foot during the attack. The identities of the attackers are unknown at this point. Approximately 3000 Arab-Israelis have visited the Gaza Strip since the beginning of the holiday. Palestinian Interior Minister Said Siam was informed of the incident, Israel Radio reported. AP contributed to this report.
