A Fatah militant was killed in an explosion Sunday when he lifted the telephone receiver at a public telephone in the West Bank city of Nablus. The Al-Aksa Brigades, an armed group linked to Fatah, said in a statement that Osama Jawabri was one of its members. The group has claimed responsibility for attacks on Israelis, including recent ambushes that killed several Israeli settlers on West Bank roads.
