Two Palestinian militants were killed in an Israeli Air Force strike in the Gaza Strip on Monday. Ha’aretz identified the two as Ashraf Shaluf of Islamic Jihad and Munir Suqar of the Al-Aksa Brigade. Three other people, likely bystanders, also were killed, and at least seven were wounded.

The chief suspect in the grisly murder of a young Parisian Jew was extradited to France late Saturday night. Youssouf Fofana was indicted and placed in police custody. Fofana had fled to the Ivory Coast after the murder, and was arrested there Feb. 22.
