Israeli soldiers kill Palestinian

JERUSALEM: Israel’s security service and the military say Israeli forces have killed a Palestinian man in the West Bank believed responsible for a Tel Aviv bus bombing last year.

The Shin Bet says security forces sought to detain the suspect near the Palestinian village of Bilin on Tuesday. It says the suspect took cover in a cave, from where he later fired at Israeli forces, prompting the troops to kill him. The security service says two of his accomplices were arrested.

The Shin Bet identified the suspect as Mohamed Aatzi, an Islamic Jihad militant behind last year’s bus bombing of Tel Aviv during Israel’s military offensive on the Gaza Strip. The explosion wounded Israeli passengers.
