Two Palestinians were killed yesterday by Israel Defense Forces gunfire, in the northern West Bank and in the Gaza Strip.

The Nablus incident occurred in the afternoon at the Havara checkpoint at the city's southern entrance. A Palestinian armed with a knife charged a Border Policeman conducting vehicle checks. Another soldier from the checkpoint unit saw what was happening and shot at the Palestinian, who died of his wounds. IDF medical staff and the Palestinian Red Crescent Society determined 20-year-old Mohammed Saada's death.

In the northern Gaza Strip near Beit Hanoun, a Palestinian was killed by the Air Force. The IDF Spokesman's Office stated that 23-year-old Mohammed Abu-Nasser was identified when he came to collect a rocket launcher that had been used a few days ago to fire Qassams toward Sderot. In the early morning hours, the IAF fired missiles at a house that has served as a weapons store in Khan Younis. No injuries were reported.

In a sweep of the West Bank, six militants were arrested in Nablus, Tul Karm, Ramallah and Hebron. Two explosive charges were used against IDF troops in Nablus and shots were fired at soldiers in the village of Al-Yamoun, west of Jenin.
