JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli troops killed three Palestinian militants in a shootout in the occupied West Bank, during an arrest operation in the city of Nablus. The clash on Tuesday that left dozens more wounded came a day after a cease-fire ended three days of fighting between Israel and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad militant group in the Gaza Strip. The armed wing of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah party later claimed the three as its members. Israel has conducted near nightly arrest raids in the West Bank in recent months as part of a crackdown on Palestinian militant groups in the aftermath of a string of deadly attacks targeting Israelis earlier this year.
