Three people were wounded, including one critically, in clashes between Palestinians and Egyptian police in northern Sinai on Tuesday morning, Israel Radio reported. The outbreak of violence involved Palestinians who were waiting to return to the Gaza Strip. Hundreds of Palestinians waiting at the El-Arish Airport began a hunger strike last week to protest their living conditions following the Hamas takeover of the Strip.
