'Activist' With a Gun

"Israeli army kills Palestinian activist in West Bank" is the headline for an AFP story today. The "activist," Nabil Hanani, was an armed member of the Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades who died in a gun battle with Israeli troops. The story reports:

Israeli soldiers early Tuesday killed an armed Palestinian activist in the village of Sanur near Nablus in the north of the West Bank, a military spokesman announced.

An army unit surrounded a building where a wanted Palestinian was hiding and he came out shooting.
