Gaza City: Israeli troops shot and seriously wounded a Palestinian in the Gaza Strip Monday, while a Palestinian stabbed and seriously wounded Israeli policeman in the West Bank, sources on each side said.

The Israeli army said troops had fired at an "individual trying to place a bomb near the security fence in the northern Gaza Strip."

Meanwhile, Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said "a policeman was gravely wounded by a Palestinian who stabbed him at the Adam intersection" north of Jerusalem.
"We are searching the area to arrest the suspect," he added.
