Israeli Soldiers Arrest Bus Bombing Suspects,Kill Palestinian Man At Gaza Border



GAZA CITY – One Palestinian was shot dead and 10 teenagers were wounded as Israeli soldiers, stationed at the border between Khan Younis, in Gaza and Israel opened fire on them, reports Al Jazeera.

Witnesses told Al Jazeera that the Palestinian youths entered the disputed "buffer zone," which is 300m along all the Gaza-Israel borders.

Israeli police, intelligence and Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have arrested 55 Palestinians in the West Bank and an Israeli Arab, reports Haaretz.

They are suspected of involvement in a recent bomb attack on a Tel Aviv bus, reports BBC News.

The blast, which wounded 24 people, came just hours before a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas on Wednesday.

It was the first such attack in Israel's largest city for more than six years. Police said the suspects received orders from Hamas.

On Wednesday, Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal said the organization was not involved in the bombing.

Hamas and Israel came to a cease-fire after eight days of armed conflict, which led to the deaths of 158 Palestinians and six Israelis.

Under the Egyptian brokered-truce deal, Israel has agreed to end all hostilities and targeted killings of militants, while all Palestinian factions will have to stop firing rockets into Israel and staging border attacks.

Both sides have claimed the upper hand after the ceasefire.
