Palestinians fire at convoy of German diplomats in West Bank

A convoy of four German diplomatic vehicles was fired upon Friday evening by Palestinian terrorists northeast of Ramallah. No one was hurt, but one car was damaged. This was not the first Palestinian attack on foreigners. Several foreigners have been kidnapped and released in recent months. In October 2003, a massive bomb planted by Palestinian militants demolished an armor-plated jeep in a convoy carrying U.S. diplomats and CIA personnel in the Gaza Strip Wednesday, killing at least three people and seriously wounding one.
