Israeli troops killed a senior Palestinian terrorist in the West Bank. The Hamas field commander, Tabeth Salah a-Din, was shot dead in Tulkarm on Tuesday after opening fire on soldiers who surrounded his hideout. The army said troops tried to arrest him, but were forced to resort to lethal measures when he resisted.
