Israeli-Palestinian Violence Kills 3, Wounds 3

Violence on both sides of the Arab-Israeli conflict killed at least three people Friday.

Israeli military officials say Palestinian gunmen ambushed a car outside the West Bank city of Nablus, killing one Israeli and wounding three others. The militant group, Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, has claimed responsibility for the attack.

In Gaza, Israeli tank fire killed a young Palestinian man in unclear circumstances. Earlier, another Palestinian was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers while trying to enter the Jewish settlement of Ganei Tal in the southern Gaza Strip. It was not clear if the man was armed.

On Thursday, Israeli troops killed a Palestinian gunman as he attempted to infiltrate the same settlement, in a botched attack that was claimed by the militant group, Hamas.
