Israeli forces captured 12 terrorists holed up in a West Bank insane asylum. Military sources said the army, tipped off by intelligence sources of a secret meeting by senior Palestinian fugitives in a Bethlehem insane asylum, surrounded the building before dawn Thursday. After an hourlong gunfight, the Palestinians surrendered. According to military sources, the detainees included members of the Al-Aksa Brigade and Palestinian Authority security services.
