Police killed an Israeli Arab gunman who ambushed one of their patrols. Israel’s northern district police chief, Ya’acov Borovsky, said a special paramilitary unit, acting on an intelligence tipoff that a roadside ambush was planned near the Beit Rimon junction in the Galilee, was patrolling the area Sunday night. After the vehicle came under fire, the patrolmen shot back, killing one gunmen and wounding an accomplice. The two men were identified as Israeli Arabs; there was no immediate link to Palestinian terrorist groups.
