Israeli troops in the occupied Gaza Strip wounded 12 Palestinians and blew up the homes of nine accused of attacking soldiers with grenades or firebombs. Maj. Gen. Yitzhak Mordechai said the demolition of the houses was a lesson to Palestinians that “those who try to hurt us with grenades and firebombs will find themselves hurt.” Two soldiers were slightly wounded in a grenade attack Oct. 12. Violent confrontations were reported meanwhile in Gaza Strip refugee camps. Arab hospital officials said soldiers shot and wounded 12 Palestinians, including a 14-year-old girl and two boys, aged 13 and 15.
