Israeli troops kill 4 in Gaza


Israeli forces killed four Palestinians during a raid on the Gaza Strip.

Troops backed by helicopter gunships entered Bureij in central Gaza early Sunday, triggering clashes with local gunmen.

Locals identified the Palestinians killed as a Hamas gunman and three civilians.

Israeli military officials said troops shot several gunmen but had no information on non-combatant casualties. Five soldiers were lightly wounded in a rocket attack on their armored vehicle.
