Israeli Soldiers Kill 2 Palestinians in Gaza


Palestinian officials say Israeli soldiers have shot and killed at least two Palestinians in separate incidents in the West Bank.

Early Sunday, Israeli troops killed a member of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades in a refugee camp in Nablus. An Israeli army spokesman said soldiers opened fire on two gunmen, killing one and wounding the other.

In the other incident, near Hebron, Israeli forces killed a man who was involved in a shootout between two Palestinian families. An Israeli army spokesman says the man was armed.

Separately, in the Gaza Strip, Hamas security forces say they found a bomb near the Palestinian parliament building. Hamas blamed members of the rival Fatah movement for planting the device.

Hamas seized control of Gaza in June after factional fighting with Fatah that killed more than 100 people.
