Israel Defense Forces troops in Jenin on Tuesday arrested Abdel Rahman Zubeidi, the brother of Tanzim commander Zakariya Zubeidi. According to Palestinian sources reported that the leading militant's brother is not involved in terrorism but was nevertheless arrested by Israel in order to place pressure on Zakariya Zubeidi. Two of Zubeidi's cousins were also arrested.

IDF soldiers arrested 36 wanted Palestinian militants in the West Bank overnight Monday, 13 of them in a predawn arrest raid in the Jenin refugee camp.

In the Jenin-area village of Silat al-Khartiya, Nahal Brigade soldiers arrested a Palestinian woman suspected of planning to assist the two female Palestinian students from Al-Najaf University who intended to carry out a suicide bombing in Tel Aviv.

Palestinians fired four Qassam rockets at Sderot and into an open area in the western Negev region on Tuesday morning. The rockets were launched from the Beit Hanun area of the northern Gaza Strip. There were no casualties and no damage was caused.

A Qassam landed in Sderot on Monday, striking an abandoned structure and evading a radar early warning system designed to warn residents of an impending attack.

Four Israelis were treated for shock, and a number of houses were damaged. Two more rockets hit the western Negev on Monday causing neither damage nor casualties.

Children in Sderot on Monday evening participated in a demonstration demanding the government stop the rocket fire on their community. Sderot, located about a kilometer-and-a-half from the Gaza Strip has been hit hard and two people, including a 4-year-old boy, were killed by rocket fire there in June. Many of the homemade Palestinian rockets have fallen into fields near Sderot, while others have damaged homes and cars.

Three residents of the Palestinian village of Budrus were wounded in clashes with security forces Tuesday morning during a protest against the construction of the West Bank separation barrier.

Five left-wing Israeli activists were also detained for questioning in the village, located north of the Jerusalem-Modi'in road.

Several dozen demonstrators showed up at the village Tuesday morning in order to hinder construction of the barrier which started in the area about a year ago but was halted due to changes in the route.

The demonstrators clashed with Border Police forces, who responded with rubber bullets and tear gas.

Earlier Monday night, IDF soldiers exchanged gunfire with Palestinian militants near the central Gaza Strip settlement of Kfar Darom. No casualties or damage were caused as a result of the incident.

An Israel Air Force helicopter missile strike tore apart a jeep in Gaza City on Monday evening, killing two senior Hamas militants.

The two men, Rabah Zakut and Nabil al-Saidi, were riding in a jeep in the Rimal neighborhood in the city.
