Israeli troops Thursday destroyed two Arab homes and sealed two others in the Israeli-occupied Gaza Strip.
Throughout the area, Palestinian youths burned tires and hurled rocks at troops, who responded with gunfire, Arab reports said. At least four Arabs were reported wounded in scattered clashes.
Palestinian witnesses said troops dynamited two homes in Gaza City belonging to a pair of brothers arrested earlier this month for allegedly belonging to a guerrilla group accused of killing two Arabs suspected of collaborating with authorities. Troops also sealed the homes of two other alleged squad members.
