Gunman Dies When Israelis Level Building

Israeli troops in the West Bank destroyed a three-story apartment building today with a tank shell and a bulldozer, killing a Palestinian gunman inside. Soldiers also shot and killed two militants carrying pipe bombs outside a Jewish settlement in the southern Gaza Strip, the army said. The gunman had opened fire Monday night on Israeli soldiers in Hebron near the Tomb of the Patriarchs, sacred to both Jews and Muslims as the burial place of Abraham. One soldier was killed and five were wounded, the army said. The radical Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and the militant Islamic group Hamas both claimed responsibility for the attack. Troops surrounded the gunman in the apartment building. This morning, they fired a tank shell, Palestinian witnesses said, but the gunman continued to return fire, and the building was razed by an armored bulldozer. The gunman’s body was found inside, and Israeli soldiers and Palestinian residents went through the rubble at one point, looking for a second body, but none was found. Full Story
