Six Palestinians were killed when Israeli tanks entered a West Bank village, despite U.S. calls for Israel to withdraw from Palestinian-controlled territory. Israel said the six were killed when they opened fire on Israeli troops entering Beit Re’ema on Wednesday, and the Israelis returned fire. During the operation, Israeli soldiers arrested two terrorists allegedly involved in last week’s slaying of Tourism Minister Rehavam Ze’evi, an army official was quoted as saying.
