In the fourth Palestinian attack in 24 hours, a woman and her children were slightly injured when their car was set ablaze by fire bombs near Efrat Friday morning. The mother extricated the children from the burning car. Thursday night, a Palestinian was shot dead when he tried to stab a Border Police Guardsman at the Bethlehem checkpoint. The officer was unhurt. Another Palestinian was killed when he opened fire on a group of soldiers awaiting a lift at the Tapuah Junction on the West Bank. That morning, a drive-by shooting targeted a checkpoint near the Palestinian village of Na'alin. A second Palestinian vehicle tried to run over the commander of the pursuit. He shot back. The vehicle was found, but both assailants got away.
