#AceWorldNews – ISRAEL – 22 March – Israeli troops have killed three Palestinians in the West Bank in a raid to capture a Hamas Islamist militant.
The Israeli military said they raided a home in a refugee camp in Jenin and killed Hamza Abu Alhija, a Hamas militant, after he opened fire on them.
A further two Palestinians were shot dead as Israeli forces confronted protesters throwing rocks and petrol bombs at them during the raid.
The Palestinian Authority denounced the violence and said it jeopardizes the fragile US brokered peace talks.
A spokesman for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas urged Washington “to prevent a collapse in negotiations”.
