Israeli forces raided the town of Kabatiya in Samaria and exchanged fire with wanted Palestinian terrorists. The leader of the Islamic Jihad group in the city of Jenin, Maraweh Ikmil, was killed, along with a Palestinian policeman. The army says four terrorists surrendered. Hundreds of Palestinians attended Ikmil’s funeral in Jenin, calling for revenge. The incident threatens the fragile four-month-old cease-fire, but Israel says it has the right to target terrorists planning attacks. The army says a double suicide bombing planned by Islamic Jihad was thwarted last week.
