Fresh violence Sunday underscored the delicate situation in the Middle East, amid continued U.S. efforts a broker a diplomatic solution.
While a proposed trilateral meeting between Israelis, Palestinians and visiting U.S. envoy Anthony Zinni was being discussed, a gunman opened fire in Kfar Saba, a town north of Tel Aviv, wounding at least nine people -- one critically, two seriously -- Israeli police said. Police shot and killed the gunman shortly after the attack.
Hopes were high earlier in the day that a preliminary cease-fire plan could be in the works, after Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon announced Saturday he would be willing to attend a trilateral meeting with Palestinian officials and Zinni.
Officials have not announced whether the meeting will take place.
