Israeli Army Tightens Clampdown in Gaza

Israel tightened travel curbs on Palestinians in the Gaza Strip Thursday after militants responded to army raids that killed 11 Palestinians by launching rockets at a town near Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s ranch. In fresh violence in the West Bank, Israeli troops killed an armed Palestinian during a battle with gunmen in the city of Tulkarm, the army said. Hamas’s armed wing said one of its members was killed in a firefight with soldiers in the city. The army set up roadblocks splitting the Gaza Strip into three sectors following a day of violence Wednesday in which the 11 Palestinians, including two gunmen and four security officers, were killed in Israeli raids. At least 26 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces since militants belonging to the fundamentalist Islamic group Hamas blew up a tank in the Gaza Strip Saturday, killing its four crewmen.
