Israeli shekel slides after Hamas commander killed
JERUSALEM Nov 14 (Reuters) - Israel's shekel slid nearly one percent to a two-month low against the dollar on Wednesday after Israel killed the military commander of Hamas in an airstrike.
The shekel fell to 3.96 per dollar - its weakest level since Sept. 13 - compared with its fixing of 3.9180.
Dealers said that after the dollar fell 0.3 percent from Tuesday's fixing, local and foreigners started buying the U.S. currency.
