Overnight, the IDF sends troops into Gaza’s al-Maghazi r.c. to search homes, question Palestinians, bulldoze 15 d. of olive and guava groves; troops withdraw in the afternoon. In the West Bank, the IDF seals border crossings into Israel through 9/16 for Rosh Hashanah; conducts arrest raids, house searches in Hebron. Suspected Fatah mbrs. detonate a bomb outside, fire an RPG at an ESF post in Gaza City, causing damage but no injuries. (PCHR 9/13; OCHA 9/19; PCHR 9/20)
