Israeli Soldiers Kill Four Palestinian Gunmen

(Reuters/New York Times) - Israeli soldiers killed four armed Palestinians in Nablus Thursday during operations against militants planning suicide bombings. "Israeli forces identified an armed man on a rooftop. Firing erupted. Two more armed men joined the fighting. The troops returned fire. The three were killed," said an army spokesman, adding that three automatic rifles were found with the gunmen. In addition, an armed Islamic Jihad member was shot dead when he tried to plant a bomb in an alley where soldiers were operating. Troops also captured a would-be suicide bomber who was apparently planning to head toward Israel Thursday.
