JERUSALEM — Shots apparently fired by Palestinian gunmen killed a 7-year-old Israeli girl on a road near the West Bank on Tuesday in an attack that also wounded her 5-year-old sister and her father.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the shooting attack on the family's car near Kibbutz Eyal in central Israel, close to the West Bank town of Kalkilya. Israeli army radio said the gunfire came from the West Bank.

Meanwhile, Israeli soldiers and Palestinians clashed in the Balata and Askar refugee camps in the West Bank.
