Two Hamas militants, Palestinian child killed in shootout with Israeli army

Two Palestinian militants from the radical Islamic group Hamas were killed in an exchange of fire with Israeli troops in central Bethlehem, relatives of the slain men said Wednesday. The two men were identified as Nader Jarawish, 35, and Ala Ayad, 24, from the refugee camp of Aida in this southern West Bank town. Both men were wanted by the Israeli security forces, relatives said. Two other Palestinians were killed in the same shooting — the 28-year-old driver of the car the two militants were in, and a 10-year-old girl who was travelling in a car behind which was accidentally hit. But the army claimed that all three men in the car, including the driver, were Hamas activists who had opened fire on an undercover army unit operating in the area. Full Story
