Four Israelis were slightly injured by an anti-tank rocket near Rafah in the Gaza Strip on Sunday.

In violence late Sunday, Israel Defense Forces soldiers shot and wounded two Palestinians near Ramallah. The military said they were throwing firebombs at an Israeli vehicle.

The four Israelis, employees of a company contracted by the Defense Ministry, were working on fencing along the Philadelphi Route when the rocket hit. They were taken to Soroka Medical Center in Be'er Sheva suffering from bruising and ringing in their ears.

Two mortars were also fired at the Gaza settlement bloc of Gush Katif on Sunday. There were no injuries.

In the West Bank, IDF troops arrested a 17-year-old Palestinian armed with a Molotov cocktail near Bethlehem.

The army will Monday transfer responsibility for part of the area around Jenin, in the northern West Bank, from the Judea and Samaria Division to Division 162, which is in charge of evacuating the four northern West Bank settlements slated for removal under the disengagement plan.

Two of the four settlements, Ganim and Kadim, are in the area for which responsibility is being transferred.
