There is serious concern that IDF troops acted as executioners in the Friday night operation during which three Fatah terrorists involved in a West Bank shooting attack were killed, Human rights group B'Tselem stated Saturday. According to the organization, evidence found in the homes of the slain terrorists indicated that in two of the three cases, IDF soldiers did not apparently act as if conducting an arrest, but an assassination. The two dead men's families said that they were unarmed and did not try to escape, but were simply shot by troops at close range after the latter discovered their identities. There were no witnesses to the death of the third man, the group said. B'Tselem said that it would pass on its findings to the army and demanded that a military police investigation be opened to ascertain the truth.
