ASHDOD, Israel — Two Palestinian homicide bombers attacked this closely guarded Israeli port Sunday, killing 11 Israelis and wounding 18 in the first deadly assault on a strategic installation in more than three years of Israeli-Palestinian fighting.

The bombings raised serious questions about Israel’s vulnerability. Police said the bombers may have been trying to blow themselves up near chemicals, causing far greater loss of life
