Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Palestinian Arabs continue violence

This report from Arutz Sheva:

The Arabs greeted the summit with three mortar shells at Gush Katif last night; one of them actually landed very near a house - that of the family of Rabbi Yitzchak Arama, who was murdered by terrorists five months ago -- causing major damage to the family car and puncturing shrapnel holes in the bedroom walls. Miraculously, no one in the family - the widow and six orphans - were hurt.

In other attacks, Hizbullah terrorists fired towards Kiryat Shomnah in the north, armed Arabs fired at IDF positions in Gaza, and firebombs were hurled an IDF patrol in Tul Karem. No one was hurt in these incidents. In addition, the army has received intelligence warnings of possible terrorist attacks originating in Jenin, and has imposed a curfew on the city. The army razed the homes last night of three terrorists in the hostile Arab village of Yata, south of Hevron, and arrested five wanted terrorists elsewhere in Yesha.
