Israeli soldiers killed a Palestinian gunman in the occupied West Bank on Sunday, witnesses and military officials said. According to Reuters, they said the 19-year-old member of al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades was shot dead in an exchange of fire with troops in Jenin refugee camp.
After dark Saturday, Israeli troops entered Nablus in an arrest operation. In the center of the city, soldiers shot and killed a Palestinian in his shop and seriously wounded another Palestinian, witnesses and rescue workers said. In another incident, Israeli troops fired at rock throwers, injuring two of them in the legs, witnesses said.
Meanwhile, Hamas may be willing to agree to a truce with Israel for one year, a senior official of movement said in an interview published on Saturday. Hamas said it had not fired any rockets at Israel from the Gaza Strip for days.
Hamas deputy political leader Moussa Abu Marzouk suggested the movement may be interested in truce. "We may agree to a one-year cease-fire," Abu Marzouk was quoted as saying in an interview with the Egyptian daily Al-Ahram. "Both parties have to abide by it."
Abu Marzouk demanded that Israel also agree to a truce with Hamas, saying the only way for success was calm on both sides.
