Israeli special forces hunt down, kill Palestinian suspect in firefight | Stars & Stripes

Israeli officials said special forces hunting the killers of a West Bank settler raided a home before dawn Thursday, killing a Palestinian suspect in a firefight that also wounded two Israeli officers.

The raid was part of a police and army hunt for those involved in a drive-by shooting last week that killed a rabbi from an Israeli settlement outpost, said police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld.

One suspect was killed and other Palestinians were arrested in the West Bank town of Jenin, according to a statement by Israel’s Shin Bet security services.

Israeli security forces did not release the slain man’s name, and there was growing confusion over his identity hours after the raid.
