4 Palestinians Killed After Truce Goes into Effect

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) - Gaza officials say at least four Palestinians have been killed by Israeli tank fire nearly two hours after Israel and Hamas began observing a three-day cease-fire.

Health Ministry official Ashraf al-Kidra and Gaza police spokesman Ayman Batniji said 15 other Palestinians were wounded in the shelling east of the southern Gaza city of Rafah.

An Israeli Army spokesman in Jerusalem said the military was looking into the incident.
