A Palestinian woman was killed during an Israeli army raid on the West Bank. Witnesses said troops surrounded a suspected terrorist hideout in the city of Tulkarm on Monday and opened fire after calling on the occupants to come out and surrender. Some of the bullets hit a nearby home, killing a 45-year-old woman. The wanted man, a suspected member of Islamic Jihad, was arrested. Israeli security sources described the fusillade as precautionary, though there did not appear to be shooting from inside the hideout. The army said the incident was being investigated.
