Israelis Kill 2 Militants

HEBRON, West Bank -- Israeli forces killed two Hamas Islamic militants in a gunfight after they trapped them in a house in the West Bank town of Hebron on Friday, Palestinians and the Israeli army said.


The Hebron clash came two days after Israel said it had captured many members of a West Bank Hamas network responsible for a bus bombing in Jerusalem that killed five people and a similar attack near Tel Aviv in July.


Hebron is a stronghold of the Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, which leads violent opposition to the 1993 Israel-PLO peace deal.
