Israeli troops kill alleged Palestinian gunman as West Bank violence persists


JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli troops have shot and killed an alleged Palestinian gunman during new unrest in the West Bank. Monday’s shooting came as a wave of violence in the occupied territory showed no signs of slowing. The Israeli military says troops stopped a motorist in Deir Nidham, a town west of Ramallah, to question him. It says the man got out of his car, threw a grenade and fired shots toward soldiers, who then opened fire. The Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed the death of a 33-year-old man. Last week, Israel concluded a fierce two-day offensive that used rare air power and hundreds of troops in what was designed as a crackdown against militants.
