Israeli troops die in Gaza blast

Six Israeli soldiers have been killed when their armoured personnel carrier was blown up during a Gaza City raid. The Palestinian militant group Hamas says it placed the bomb that destroyed the vehicle. The six deaths are said to be the highest toll for the Israeli army in a single operation in nearly two years. Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon vowed that Israel would seek out and hit wanted militants “wherever they operate and wherever they hide”. He has called an emergency meeting of his inner Cabinet to discuss how to respond to the deaths. On Tuesday afternoon, an Israeli helicopter gunship fired a missile at a Palestinian car in Gaza City causing casualties. Palestinian sources say two militants were injured and a 14-year-old boy was killed. Full Story
